Gordon Dixon provides a fascinating account of his National Service on the Berlin Airlift. As an 18 year old he was posted to HQ Bückeburg and was in charge of a small team of Germans including ex members of the Hitler Youth. Just like the plane crash he was involved in, Gordon takes it all in his stride.

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
