George Batts MBE, Leg d’Hon, talks candidly about his life as a Corporal with the Royal Engineers. By his own admission he was daft to ‘volunteer’ for a posting that appeared in the build up to D-Day.
You might recognise George as he’s invested a huge amount of personal energy and time as Patron of the Normandy Memorial Trust.

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER THIS
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
