We capture the personal recollections of our armed service veterans
so their legacy of bravery, sacrifice and suffering can live on.
Legasee Educational Trust has received £62,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the ”Keeping Britain Afloat” project. Working with Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust and local young people the project sets out to film the personal stories of 50 Veterans who served as Chatham Ratings in the Convoys of the Second World War. The project will culminate in 2015 with a permanent exhibition at Chatham Historic Dockyard celebrating the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

Legasee have many Second World War Veterans waiting to be filmed. Each of them played an immense part in giving us the freedoms we now take for granted. To ensure their memories live on, we need your help.
“It is a sad fact that with each passing year the veterans of WWII diminish in number. Legasee is to be congratulated that in a very short time they have recorded a growing archive of interviews with these veterans in a unique personal style.”

In giving to Legasee you can be assured that every penny goes towards the filming of Veterans [over 93% of our income] and that our work has been recognised as valuable and important by the Veterans themselves, their organisations and the students and teachers using our archive.
