26 The Zilken Letters. A veteran exposes the army's best kept WWII secrets!
"In the hot desert, while on guard, some of us drank the rusty water from the radiators of the Bren Gun carriers.  I would lie on my back - mouth under the drain plug of the carrier!  "I didn’t get far before Jerry had me in range and dropped a few mortars all around me.  I froze, as each bomb seem to get nearer.  I could feel the heat off them as they exploded …". "They were all court martialled and two or three were sentenced to be shot!". Revealing highlights of letters Private Fred Zilken sent to comrade Wilf Shaw over a number of years after WWII.  Great, unpublished history! Please take my MOBILE survey!
