Morell World War Two

            The interviews conducted for the veterans of World War II made up the bulk of our project. These interviews were conducted during the winter of 2011. In the community of Morell some of these veterans were interviewed for their experiences during their time in the service. For those that couldn't be interviewed due to location or due to them passing on family members were contacted.

Morell World War One

            The interviews for those who served in World War I were a little more difficult to conduct. The main reason for this is that there are a very few World War I veterans still living. The interviews for these veterans were conducted with children of the veteran, grandchildren of the veteran, nieces and nephews as well as grand nieces and grand-nephews of the veteran. Though World War I was fought for empires, it doesn't change the sense of community and nationality that each individual had.
