    Peter Hart, the Imperial War Museum's Oral Historian, has been interviewing veterans of both world wars since 1981. His Voices from the Front series draws on the Museum's archive of recorded memories, along with photographs and military maps, to bring to life the battle experiences of front line regiments during the Second World War.

    Composed mainly of conscripts, the 16th Durhams left for active service on Christmas Day 1942 and served in North Africa before landing in Salerno in September 1943 and starting the gruelling push north through the long Italian Campaign, then on to the Gothic Line and - instead of home - to Greece to police a civil war.
