5 IWM Col­lec­tions

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEST WEBSITES -

IWM’s Col­lec­tions gate­way cur­rently al­lows you to search through some 800,000 items col­lected by the museum since 1917, from im­ages, doc­u­ments and books to recorded oral his­to­ries. A sim­ple key­word search by ‘Na­tional Ser­vice’ turns up over 4,000 items, in­clud­ing many pho­to­graphs – from a lively snap of a skif­fle group play­ing at a Christ­mas con­cert at Belfast Bar­racks, to the spec­ta­cle of a full mil­i­tary burial for two ser­vice­men who were killed in ac­tion in Sin­ga­pore, 1953.
