LEARN - legasee


We capture the personal recollections of our armed service veterans so their legacy of bravery, sacrifice and suffering can live on.



Legasee provide students and teachers with unique access to interviews with military personnel who have served their country at some point between 1939 and the present day. The video content is designed for use by students aged 5+ to complement learning in social and political history, citizenship and Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

Saving Ryan’s blushes!

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day landings, Legasee have launched an updated set of our original Normandy Campaign lesson plans.  These will enable students to consider the preparation, execution and effect of the entire Normandy Campaign. Additionally, they will feature interviews with veterans who, despite Steven Spielberg suggestion otherwise, will prove that the Brits were at Omaha beach fighting with Private Ryan!

Legasee can organise [fully funded] educational projects where our Veterans will visit your school or college to talk about their experiences. We supply professional facilitators from relevant industries who will help your pupils get the most from the day.

Contact us if you would like to know what we can do for your school.

Working with legasee has been amazing. The resources we have got have been professional and not only do they have the ideas, they have the connections to make it happen

Case study: The Berlin Airlift, GCSE Activity Lessons

Legasee, in partnership with the Heritage Lottery, the British Berlin Airlift Association and Bungay High School created a fantastic teaching resource for GCSE Key stage 3 students studying the Cold War. Developed for both in-class and homework learning, this series of 5 lesson plans utilise eye witness accounts [available in our archive], discussion points, photographs and memorabilia to create a series of activities that will engage, educate and generate a real interest in this oft-forgotten chapter of British Military History.


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
