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

Wilf recounts many enchanting, funny and fearsome tales!

Also joining us is Wilf’s friend, Lesley Littlewood, whose father was in WW2 as a Bren gunner.

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!

More great unpublished history - of the Second World War.
