Description

"I thought they must have been scraping the barrel when I was suddenly called up and conscripted into the army at the age of 19." Called up in January 1940 into the Royal Engineers, Neville Chesterton's first experiences of war, only a few months later, were to witness the horrendous sinking of the Lancastria and the evacuation of St Nazaire. Taken prisoner by the Germans during the battle for Crete, he spent the next four years in prisoner-of-war camps in Austria.show more
