Picture this, “we hung our shoes tied by the laces round our neck and we set off to cross the Pyrenees. A mountain guide knew every inch of those mountains because his job was a smuggler, he was a professional smuggler!”

Bob Frost flew Wellington Bombers with 150 Squadron. On the 16th September 1942, he was shot down over occupied Belgium and became an RAF evader. His escape was aided by members of the Comète Line who helped him travel through France to Spain & Gibraltar.

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
