The Remembered Podcast: Walking With The Wounded
The Remembered Podcast is an opportunity to explore the First World War, and its continuing impact today, in more depth.
Each week, we’ll be chatting to beneficiaries of the There But Not There project, as well as other people who are working to commemorate the war in different ways. The First World War was fought on many fronts and by many different races and we want to give a platform to those different voices, while raising awareness of the There But Not There project.
In episode two, we speak to Pamela Deakin and Ed Parker of Walking With The Wounded, about how important it is to find employment for veterans who are transitioning to civilian life.
A big thank you to Pamela and Ed for speaking with us – and for offering us their office to record in! Our apologies for any ambient noise you might hear.
If you are interested in the work that Walking With the Wounded is doing, you can find out more about their programmes on their website. You can also help raise money by getting involved in projects like Walking Home For Christmas.
If you are a veteran who needs support, you can contact them via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01263 863 903.
A massive thank you to the Daily Express and its readers, who have helped us raise over a half a million in the last few weeks! If you missed the coverage we’ve had in the Daily Express, you can read about council engagement with the project and Chelsea Pensioners connections to WWI.
This summer we teamed up with the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust to offer funding to communities so they can have their own silhouette installation in time for the Armistice this November. You can find out more and apply on our website.
This week we’re sharing our first listener story, from Clare White, about her Great Grandfather and his father, who both fought in the First World War.
If you would like to send us a story about a relative in the First World War, please email us email@example.com. We’re looking for approximately 200-300 word stories or 2-3 minute recordings.
Next week we’ll be speaking to Western Front Way, a project looking to establish a permanent walking path along the Western Front, to bring nations together to remember the conflict and celebrate peace.
