A Second Coffee with WWII army veteran Wilf Shaw, Aged 97

Great, unpublished history!

A coffee with Wilf Shaw of 6th Battalion the Green Howards, 50th infantry division, in the British Army. 

Also joining us is Wilf’s friend, Lesley Littlewood, whose father was also in WW2 as a Bren gunner with 56 Reconnaisance battalion, part of 78th Division.

Wilf was in many campaigns including fighting for Monty’s 8th army at Alamein, Wadi Akarit in Tunisia, Sicily and of course Normandy. He was wounded twice and still returned to battle!
