About our archive

The archive in total comprises a range of material in many different formats. These include paper records such as minutes and planning papers, photographs and audio and video recordings. There are also artefacts including items made by blind veterans, paintings and published material such as books written about the charity and by our veterans. This material exists in physical form but increasingly we also hold records which originated digitally as well as digital copies of the Review, photographs and other selected items.

Please note that not everything in the archive is fully catalogued and available here but more material is being added over time. To enquire about the physical archive please contact our archivist on archives@blindveterans.org.uk

The archive catalogue follows the standard structure of multi-level description used by archives and has some specialist terms. For an explanation of these please see the Glossary.
