Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings with memoirs about the tough training for D-Day and stories about Landing Craft Tanks delivering their cargo of hardware and humans to the battle-strewn beaches. "We had delivered to Juno and Gold and were returning our Landing Craft Tank to England. We were close to our shores when we pancaked down so hard in the sea that we broke our craft’s back. "A German armoured machine gun truck with infantry squad stopped next to the American soldiers. The officer barked “Raus! Raus mit den Händen hoch!” More great unpublished history - of the Second World War.

A final dose of fun and adventure with hero Wilf Shaw. "We're done for" said Wilf's mate as a cloud of desert dust appeared on the horizon, signifying the approach of a very large force of enemy troops. "One day, on board ship, they decided to run a Battalion boxing tournament and Sgt O'Grady asked the assembled company for volunteers - not a single hand was raised - until Jeff nudged me and said, 'I'll have a go Shaw if you will'.

Thanks Sara. I have tried to mix it up with additional voices whenever possible but people are surprisingly reluctant sometimes. I have tended to shy away from authors because it’s not really my niche and there are others who are already doing it well. I will try to do more when I can though. I appreciate your thoughts. 👍

podcast has potential. author has a clear even tone when speaking. i feel after a few episodes the series could do with either radio broadcast supporting audio, interviews with other family members of WW2 veterans, or even an independent author adding their take. i realize this podcast is for the authors own fathers memoirs, but collaboration with other independently published sources could make for a more enjoyable presentation and authors supporting authors is always a great thing. i will try to check back in but its just not capturing my attention. a great effort nonetheless.
