Some of the pages on this site have been added by members of the public. If you have something to share we'd love to hear from you. You can add your words and photos to this site instantly. Just register, and off you go! You'll be guided through the process by simple on-screen instructions and it only takes a few minutes.

It's a great way to share your own stories, memories, pictures and research with the rest of the world. 

So what could you add?  

  • an old photo of people and places in the Westminster during the war
  • a new photo of the place as it looks now
  • memories of life around Westminster during the war 
  • information about some aspect of Westminster during the war and post-1945

It's entirely up to you what you add, your memory can be of an event you experienced or something that your family told you about. If you are unsure, browse the site to see what other people have added. You can add a single photo or one paragraph of text, or whole photo galleries.  In order to give a well-rounded picture of the area during the war, we also welcome contributions from historians and local history societies. 

It's so easy!

  • You can sign in right now, create a rough draft or test page, and log in later to finish it.
  • When you're happy with your page, press a button to submit your words and photos to our editors for publishing.
  • Our volunteer editors usually take a couple of days to add your pages to the website and an e-mail will be sent to you when your article goes live.
  • The next time you visit the site, please log in with your name and password.

Why do I need to register and log-in?

Registering sets up your own personal part of the site. It also helps to stop unacceptable material being added to the site by web browsers.

We keep your details in case the editors need to contact you, e.g. they might need to check something about your page before it goes on the main site. Your e-mail address will not be publicly available on the site and we will not pass it on to anyone else without your permission.

Terms and conditions

  • Text submitted to the site may be edited for the sake of clarity or readability.
  • Images submitted to the site may be cropped or digitally- enhanced (for example, to improve contrast).
  • West End at War is under no obligation to publish any text or photos submitted to the site.
  • West End at War may reject material on the grounds of copyright infringement, offensiveness or other legal considerations.
  • West End at War cannot accept contributions of a commercial, marketing or advertising nature. However, we will accept editorial content from commercial organisations (for example, the memories of a shop-owner).
