Memories of Service 5 - Albert Asher

Web (Full Length) – 2017

In the morning, we saw all these carriages coming back, all the chaps coming from Dunkirk. And lo and behold, they come out with great big steaming cups of coffee and sandwiches for the Kiwis, and these poor beggars in the carriage alongside us were starving, just coming from the beaches.

We got to a place called Bel Hamid. And we got hammered all right. We came tearing back to Egypt again.
– Arthur Asher
We'd been firing too low. We were trying to hit the officer on top of the tank!
– Arthur Asher
If (the ship) hadn't been bombed we would have gone to Crete. Anything could have happened, eh?"
