ABOUT - legasee


Our commitment is that future generations can learn about our military history through the personal recollections of the men and women who witnessed it first hand


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

We now have the largest, freely available film archive of British military Veterans on the web.

Our ambition is to record many more interviews so that the legacy of bravery and sacrifice of these men and women can be learned from by future generations.

Many of our veterans have provided personal photographs which you can find on their personal pages. Furthermore, almost all of our veteran interviews have been transcribed.

Our search function helps you to find the people, places and events that interest you but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, please contact us.

Legasee Educational Trust became a charity on January 10th, 2012. Our registered number is 1145354.

Legasee is one of the first consolidated attempts to document the war-time experiences of men and women who have served their country.  While remembrance ceremonies and battle anniversaries are regularly reported on TV,  this coverage rarely focuses on veterans’ personal experiences for more than a few seconds and is of limited value as an educational tool or a record of individual achievement. Legasee aims to cover military life in much more depth by focusing on personal stories and viewpoints. If you think this work is important, please consider a donation. PLEASE DONATE NOW
