The play Bomb Happy featured at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival over August Bank Holiday Weekend. See more of its success via this link: https://www.facebook.com/EverwitchTC/
In the words of the play producers, ‘Bomb Happy is a verbatim play about ordinary young men in extraordinary times. Bomb Happy evocatively brings to life the powerful testimonies of five Normandy Veterans, inexperienced young conscripts, who find themselves part of one of the most dangerous operations of World War II’.
A reminder that there are free National Express coach tickets for any veteran and their carer to travel to the reunion in Portsmouth (and home again of course). If you would like to be booked on to a coach then email firstname.lastname@example.org

“An old soldier and an old sailor meet on an old ship: the years may separate them but the shared values, respect, commitment and humour simply bring them together.
Two generations, one belief. This is belonging. This is the everlasting spirit that binds is together”.
