  1. Another fantastic episode. I love the slight change of pace as you take us behind the front to see what it was like traveling up to the trenches.

  2. Remember well a visit with you (+ Henry Williamson Society) and climbing up the ladder to the corn loft chapel. One of the Society’s members gave a reading from Henry’s description of the chapel, which revealed that absolutely nothing had changed since WW1, even down to the chattering birds outside. We were also treated to another member (who was an organist at Exeter Cathedral) playing the harmonium. Wonderful memories.
