Another helping of soldierly stories wrapped up in rhyme.

We’ve got a poignant verse written to a soldier by his tank comrades whilst he was laid up wounded in a military hospital.

A poem written by German soldier Heinrich to his girlfriend. He never came back from the front but his loving lines have been re-enacted for us by Kessie and Rolf.

And there’s a recce mission for us all to work together on! I’m going to be asking for listeners’ help in locating Nancy, the long lost wife of a soldier killed in action.

News from America where young Savannah has broken all history test records at her school

PS - A great load of heartwarming tales of Christmas at war around the globe.
