About us

Legasee provides military enthusiasts, students and teachers with unique access to a hi-definition video archive of interviews with Veterans of military conflict from 1939 to the present day.

Our ambition is to capture as many of these personal recollections, so that their legacy of bravery, sacrifice and suffering can live on. Meet them in our archive.

 

Current campaigns

 

Loved ones of veterans who have been emotionally or physically

affected while serving in a military role are being sought now.

 

We need your support

Legasee is an independent charity funded entirely through gifts, donations & the creation of innovative, educational projects.

To keep our production costs to a minimum we rely heavily on the hard work and good will of our team of volunteers who help across a wide range of production, administrative and fundraising duties. Would you like to help us?

 

 

New website coming soon...

A new website with an advanced search function is in development.

Along with all of our educational lesson plans, we think it will be the perfect home for the 600 veteran interviews we have now recorded.

    “Suddenly every gun in the 8th army opened up. There must have been at least a thousand of them and they were reloading them as fast as they could... you've never heard a sound like it.”

    “After that someone was telling me you'll be alright, it was like a dream and something went in my chest, and then 14 days later, I see myself in a hospital.”
