In this film, Len Tyler tells us how, as a musician in the Army, he fell in love with the tuba, having flirted with the trombone, how he kept quiet at Pirbright, how the ‘Golden Eight’ became the ‘Golden Nine’ and of the time he smuggled a sousaphone.

Len provides a fab interview all of energy and entertainment. One can only imagine what it was like to play with so many other musicians. You can see him again in the Chase Bridge film where he had the pupils in the palm of his hand.

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
