About us

Legasee provides military enthusiasts, students and teachers with unique access to a hi-definition video archive of interviews with Veterans of military conflict from 1939 to the present day.

Our ambition is to capture as many of these personal recollections, so that their legacy of bravery, sacrifice and suffering can live on. Meet them in our archive.

Current campaigns

As part of the project Korea - The Forgotten War, Legasee have worked in partnership with Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council to develop a special Arts Award.

    “I can remember vividly the scene at that time and the picture of my Captain on the bridge worrying and us all worrying with him. Little flows of arctic ice coming by us… Then we were quitting. It's the most horrible recollection.”

    “It’s frightening to be on guard duty because you don’t know what’s going to happen. You don’t know if a German is going to pop up or two or three Germans are going to pop up. You’re there, what do you do? Very frightening.”
