Project Team: West Dunbartonshire Council

Project Title: Singers, Sirens And Silent Heroes

Through the creation of a series of vignettes, West Dunbartonshire Council's project, entitled "Singers, Sirens, and Silent Heroes" will develop a more intimate and personal legacy of online materials and resources for learning to complement existing archive collections. The vignettes will cover a range of World War II topics from children’s memories of the nights of the Clydebank Blitz and evacuation, to the Singer Clock – which stood undamaged through the Blitz, coming to signify the resilience and strength of the local people in the face of the enemy bombing. In addition the subjects of women, the shipyards and armaments will also be explored.
