HMS Leigh - Bernard Maybe

Bernard Charles Maybe was 18 when he was conscripted into the RAF in 1943 to serve as a Flight Mechanic and Ground Crew. Remembering how he felt when he was first conscripted, Mr Maybe compares his experiences to those of teenagers today. Sadly Bernie died in 2019. Many thanks to SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity for helping us to interview Bernie.
