Oral history project

Do any of you know of a community or public history project concerning WW2 naval activity that uses oral history and whose archives are accessible? I want to carry out a case study report as part of an oral history module I am studying for an M.Litt.

Not completely directly but IWM has tapes that include RN personnel – some of those I think include WW2. Also BRNC Dartmouth, did Britannia’s Voices which includes the whole history they could track including WW2. Not directly just what you were after. But after a few days seeing no answer thought they might be helpful.March 14, 2018 at 10:32 pm #16064Thomas BParticipant
U.S. Naval Institute has an extensive oral history collection to include many prominent USN / USMC officers who served in WW II. See this page on the USNI website to determine if this is the kind of resource you would find useful: https://www.usni.org/heritage/oral-history.March 15, 2018 at 8:26 am #16071Bob SmithParticipant
Thomas, thanks for this link. It’s exactly what I was looking for and will have a close look in the next few days. The only drawback I see is that access is not free so I might have to raid the piggy bank!

I have found the BBC site useful:
