The British Nuclear Test Veteran: Nuclear Weapons, National Service, and the Soldier’s Body is a PhD research project conducted by Fiona Bowler at the University of Southampton.

The project investigates the experiences of British nuclear test veterans involved in atmospheric nuclear tests, perceptions of radiation risk, and the impact of these experiences upon servicemen. It also examines the evolution of a community of British nuclear test veterans.

As part of this project, Fiona Bowler is looking to conduct oral history interviews with British nuclear test veterans and their family members. The data will feature within her doctoral thesis, which will be made available to participants upon completion. You are invited to participate in these interviews, and if interested, please contact:
