HSHD Ep.83 3945 Portraits – Jack Ansell – Memories of World War 2: A Life Lesson

In this episode, Glyn shares an interview he did with World War 2 Veteran, Jack Ansell. Jack served with the Royal Corps of Signals for the entire duration of the War and was captured and held as a POW for 4 years being made to carry out forced labour. Jack celebrated his 100th Birthday shortly before this recording, and his story is one not of blood and gore, of which he clearly experienced, but one of human kindness and compassion at times you never would have imagined. This is a story of making the very best of a bad situation and a story of risk versus reward. Check out the 3945portraits.com website where Glyn has shared the video version of this interview too, along with the portraits taken of Jack.
