As we approach Remembrance Day, it is a time to remember our countrymen but it has been revealed that despite 64% of Brits being told war stories by family members, only 8% of us have recorded them for future generations – important historical events and anecdotes that will soon be lost forever. Act before it is too late.

Writing an autobiography seems to sit with celebrities who have a star-studded story to tell but we all know we’d prefer to leave more than our photos and trinkets behind for our families to remember us by.
