Major Freddie Hunn gives a brilliant account of his military service up top to the end of the Nth African campaign. He served with the 12th Royal Lancers and sailed to France with the British Expeditionary Force. We know how that ended. <p> <p>What's not so often heard is what it was really like to be a Desert Rat. Freddie fills in a lot of the details. Frustratingly, we never met again. Freddie passed away in 2015.

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
