1. Leslie Peck enlisted a week after Pearl Harbor... and did not get out of the US Navy until Oct' 1945. He was a rare exception.... serving in the Atlantic, and Pacific.

    I had to cut many parts of the interview out unfortunately... and leave the key elements to the story. I had to upload this... in an average quality.

    Please take the time to hear a survivor's story.

  4. Interview with husband and wife John and Margaret Gordon.

    During WW2, John served first in an anti aircraft artillery role, then as a Despatch Rider. A veteran of the Dunkirk evacuation, this modest ex soldier was awarded the Belgian Croix de Guerre avec Palm for his Bofors gun defense of Antwerp harbour.

    John's wife Margaret, who he wed during the war, served as a Wren on HMS Caroline in Belfast docks, where she carried out important naval administration.

    Their stories provide a powerful portrait of life in a country at war.
