Pete & Gary's Military History

Feb 5, 2020

The South Notts Hussars was a Second World War artillery regiment that served throughout the war. During the 1980s and 1990s, Peter Hart interviewed more than 50 veterans from the regiment about their war service, making this one of the most comprehensive oral history collections of a WW2 unit ever recorded.

In this first of several episodes following the South Notts Hussars through World War 2, Peter Hart and Gary Bain discuss their pre-war experience, their motivations for enlisting and their training.
