'East Dunbartonshire’s War: First World War Oral History Project'

“We were delighted to work with Sue to develop a training programme for secondary school students and others as part of a First World War oral history project. Among many other things, Sue taught the students how to phrase questions, approach interviews sympathetically and keep necessary records. Sue’s friendly and approachable manner put all the students at ease and she formed a great rapport with them during the sessions. She created an atmosphere of trust and comfort in which all were encouraged to participate. After the training the students were full of praise for her. Her great passion for oral history shone through in the training and she conveyed how truly meaningful the making of the oral history was. We would love to work with Sue again.”
