The new American Air Museum website launches today
We need your help to tell the story of Second World War American servicemen.

The American Air Museum website is a digital record of the memories and stories of the men and women of the US Army Air Forces who found themselves serving their country from somewhere in England during the Second World War. It also records the memories of the British people who met and befriended them.

We're collecting photographs, memories and information and we need your help to add to this unique digital resource. Perhaps you recognise the people or the place in one of the photographs on our website? Maybe you, or a family member, have vivid memories of American service personnel in your town or village? You might be a keen researcher of Second World War history and have some facts and figures to contribute.

Your information might provide the vital link in a remarkable story. You might see your story in the museum!

Imperial War Museums has uploaded The Lusitania Camisole
Imperial War Museums
The Lusitania Camisole is one of the many objects featured in our new First World War Galleries. It was worn by Mrs Margaret Gwyer, a survivor of the sinking of RMS Lusitania passenger ship, which was torpedoed by the German navy on 7 May 1915.

Mrs Gwyer fell into the water from a lifeboat and was sucked into one of the sinking ship's funnels. However, the explosion of one of the ship's boilers blew her back to the surface, where she was picked up and later reunited with her husband. She kept the oil-stained camisole as a reminder of her ordeal.
