During the Second World War, Jim Knox served with the 4th Parachute Battalion. He was assigned to Brigade HQ and spent his time in Italy in a small troop interrogating prisoners and gathering intelligence. This short film has been created for a VE Day celebratory series called 'Home'. Special thanks to the Royal British Legion for making it happen.

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
