Whilst dug in at Nafplio, Doug recalls a German Stuka attack on the grounded Ulster Prince in the harbour. He’s convinced that it was his gun that took out the plane and afterwards, they went to investigate the wreckage. He’s then moved to Souda Bay in Crete. He recalls the moment the German Paratroopers descend. They were pitifully under prepared to fight them off. He recalls that the Cretans despised the Germans.
