Thanet Stories

Jan 21, 2019

Harry Tullett enlisted in 1915 & was stationed in Sicily. In 1918 he was transferred to the western front as a member of the Royal Army Medical Corp. His granddaughter Jenny (a Broadstairs resident) 100 years later transcribed the pencil written diary to a coherent story now told in this podcast.

Hear his words as he describes; life in France, his pals, rescuing wounded soldiers from no-mans land, dressing stations, the terrible fear from machine guns & shrapnel, & the shear hard work & danger of his role. Throughout, his humour & those of his pals comes shining through. It’s an honour to be able to bring this brave soldier’s words back to life
