Heroes Amongst Us Project - Tony Williamson
This series showcases the lives of people across Trafford that have served in our Armed Forces, their families and also those that have worked, or still work, across the emergency services. Working in partnership with Trafford Veterans CIC we listen to the amazing people in our communities that have seen and done astonishing things, faced some terrible struggles, but who have ultimately found comradery, support and comfort as part of the Trafford Veterans family.
Episode one – Tony Williamson
To launch the series we talk to Tony about his varied and absorbing career in the armed services, his first hand experiences with emperor penguins and his life in Germany living next door to the real pied piper of Hamelin! Tony also shares how the transition to ‘Civvy street’ has been a difficult one for him but how finding Trafford Veterans has given him support, a sense of belonging and a new role helping build the organisation.
