Online veterans' podcasts from the Tank Museum

Website still of tank
The Tank Museum’s website has a page full of podcasts from former British servicemen who fought in tanks during World War Two and after. Joe Ekins of the Northamptonshire Yeomanry remembers the day he destroyed three Tiger tanks within ten minutes. Joe was unaware that one of his shots had killed German SS tank commander Michael Wittmann – who had 160 tank kills himself.

Ray Gordon, a Churchill tank wireless operator in the 9th Royal Tank Regiment, talks of the bonds between his crew of five as they fought their way through the Normandy countryside. These are unique podcasts that can be downloaded in an MP3 format and are only a fraction of the stories from the museum’s Archive.
