Baker ‘B’ From Le Hamel to Kiel - Part Two: Talking with Bill Betts

In this episode, we look at the second installment of our conversation from last month with Second World War veteran Bill Betts. We pick up from where we left off in part 1 by discussing Beverly, the second hand M4 Sherman Tank that he and his other crew members inherited and called home for much of their war. We also found out about the improvised measures that Bill and the rest of his colleagues took to add extra protection to their Sherman. We learn about the Essex Yeomanry's time fighting through Holland, crossing the Rhine in their Donald Duck tanks and also their experience of liberating Kiel, as well as much, much more.
