Compilation - Memories of Service 4

Web (Full Length) – 2017

From those who joined up in World War ll to the relative youngsters who saw action in Vietnam, this selection of clips is collected from the fourth series of interviews with ex-servicemen sharing their memories of service. The stories of these men and women range from the comical to the horrific. Age has taken its toll on their bodies but the memories remain sharp. Made by director David Blyth (Our Oldest Soldier) and Hibiscus Coast Community RSA Museum curator Patricia Stroud, the interviews are a valuable record of WWll and conflict in South East Asia.

I wasn’t old enough but I basically told my parents that with parents’ consent I could go at 19 - they either signed the paper or I forged their signature. So I went and arrived in Vietnam about fifth of May 1967.
– Vietnam veteran Dez Harrison
