World War II Resources

on February 26, 2015

So, Nottingham Black Archive (NBA) have completed its first ever Lottery funded project. Yippee! What do we have to show for it?

A three panel static exhibition on Caribbean Ex-Servicemen
A Book
2 community loans boxes containing objects associated with WWII and the Caribbean.
17 oral history transcripts of Ex-Servicemen, their families and their friends.
A website which contains information on what we hold in our archive.

Some of the outcomes produced are available for the community to have or to loan. So if you would like a copy of the book or DVD then contact me at

If you would like to loan the exhibition or the loans boxes then contact me on the email above for more information.

Below one of the layers of the children’s loans box which contains 17 objects including a ‘kiddy’ lamp and costumes. Lots of fun and learning to be had!
