2014 is a momentous year for historians, marking as it does the centenary since the beginning of the First World War.

Throughout this year we will be commemorating the Great War every Wednesday in the Remember When? section – but we need your help.

We will be delving into the Telegraph & Argus archives to recall some of the international events that led up to the declaration of war on August 4, 1914, and how it resonated in Bradford.

We would love to hear from you with the stories of your relatives and acquaintances and what they went through in the Great War. We want to be able to tell the stories of real Bradfordians, through their own words and pictures, and how they lived through 1914 to 1918.

Please give us as much information as you can about the photographs and memorabilia you send us so we can fully honour your family members or acquaintances in these pages. And we also want to know what life was like here in Bradford during the war years, as well as away on the battlefields.

If you want your family and friends’ stories to be a part of our special Remember When? sections throughout this year, E-mail jim.greenhalf@telegraph andargus.co.uk, or write to Jim Greenhalf at Remember When? War Memories, Telegraph & Argus, Hall Ings, Bradford BD1 1JR.

If you can send us copies of your pictures and documents, that would be better than originals, though we will of course return any original material sent to us.
