Two weeks ago we filmed the first part of William Crowder’s first hand account of the German Spring Offensive. On duty in a front line trench and in charge of communications, William was awarded the DSO for his courage in keeping the line open.
Here are some of the screen captures from filming by cinematographer and director, Nick Loven.
