Join Mark Smith for a special podcast featuring the medals of World War Two, released to mark 75 years since VE Day.

Mark says: “The guys and girls that you see wearing medals over VE Day went through some rough times. The more you understand about the medals the more you can see how rough those times may have been. Their story is on their chest because their medals will tell you where they were.”
