I AM researching a BBC documentary on the experience of children who had fathers who fought in the First World War.

Many never saw them again after they marched off to war. Half a million fathers died.

I am interested in memories of fathers coming home from war, gassed, injured and disabled and the effect this had on family life. I'm also looking for childhood memories of happy reunions with dads who survived the war unscathed.

If you are in your nineties or hundreds and have a moving personal story to tell about your father in the First World War please contact me on 0117 9258589 or by e-mail at lizi.cosslett@testimonyfilms. com
