Episode notes

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.

Derek shares stories about following his Dad into the Forces aged 16 (15 and three quarters to be precise) living and attending school in Berlin as a child of a serving soldier (Amongst many other things Derek's Dad would drive Prisoner Rudolph Hess to his Doctors Appointments) and a total of 19 years serving in Germany, a place that holds many great memories, especially the interactions with the locals.
