International Bomber Command Centre Digital Archive
The IBCC Digital Archive collects material related to all those who served in, or were affected by, the bombing in Europe during the Second World War.
The archive is managed and maintained by a team at the University of Lincoln, which is a partner of the International Bomber Command Centre in Lincoln. The Centre opened in 2018.
The advantage of the digital archive is that families can retain ownership of physical memorabilia, such as diaries, log books, photos and letters, yet share the digital versions with others. The project has been the recipient of National Lottery Heritage Funding (2015-2019). So far we have recorded over 1,200 interviews of eyewitnesses to the bombing (veterans and civilians) and around 2,000 individual collections have been published in the archive. There’s much more to be added still.
