Hi Steve

 

 I don’t want to exclude anyone that has an interesting story that has some historical significance, that’s why I’ve left it a little open.  

 

Here’s an example of a reply from a lad that wasn’t sure if he fitted the bill for our project...

 

I don't know if I would qualify as such as I was only a national serviceman and as every keeps telling me I was not a proper soldier, even though I serve in the toughest regiment in the British army and spent around a year of that time on active service. I had about nine months in Cyprus in 1956 and about week in Egypt on the Suez invasion in 1956.. In 1956 the British Army lost some 300 men in Cyprus and most of those are buried at Waynes keep which you can't visit with out permission on the UN. When we opened a new Memorial to those that died last year in Cyprus not one MP or a member of the Royal Family turned up in case the Greeks got upset.

 

Maybe you could post the following wording, which I’ve been emailing and posting on some forums and web sites...

 

The Legasee war veterans project is looking for volunteers who want to tell their stories.

 

As part of an exciting social history project, the film company Legasee is looking for war veterans who would like to have their stories filmed for posterity.

 

This footage will be used to launch a unique online archive of interviews for use by schools, colleges and members of the public.

 

To kick-start the project, we’re looking for war veterans of any age who wish to recall their experiences in front of the camera for the benefit of future generations.  

 

It doesn’t matter what campaign or country they served in, or what role they played.  The Legasee war veterans project is completely free of charge, with any travel expenses paid – all we need is their knowledge, enthusiasm and a small amount of their time to take part in the filming.  

 

If you know anyone that’s interested, please ask them to email me giving their name, age, daytime phone number and brief details of their wartime service so we can contact them to discuss this further.

 

We hope to hear from you, and please feel free to forward this email to any war veterans that you think might be interested.

 

Kind regards

Dave Player
