Joy Lofthouse flew Spitfires with the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) during WWII. This short film [edited from her whole interview] is thanks to the support of  the Royal British Legion. Without them we would not see such wonderful B-roll footage from AP and British Pathe. Five minutes viewing,  well spent on VE Day.

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
