Memories of Service 2 - James Murray

Web (Full Length) – 2016

One of the biggest naval battles there in the Second World War was Okinawa. We battered that place for four days.
– James Murray
And that’s when we saw the bomb go off in Hiroshima. We were only about 180 miles away when that happened. We thought what had happened was that they’d blown up Japan.
– James Murray
We went in landing craft and into Yokosuka, which was a naval base in Japan, and took over the naval base there.
– James Murray
The conditions (the POWs) were in were… just bag of bones, skin and bone. No wonder a man had nightmares when he got out of the navy. It takes about two years, three years to settle down.
– James Murray
