Pathfinder International was delighted to announce that due to popularity and high interest, our “I am Tommy Atkins!” campaign will run for the entire year in the centenary of the Remembrance commemorations.
Each month, there will be an in depth podcast with a veteran from an array of conflicts since World War 1, talking about their own personal reflections, memories and what the spirit of “Tommy Atkins” means to them.
Falklands veteran, Simon Weston launched our first podcast on Remembrance Day, which you can watch below.
December sees former Pathfinder Steve Heaney MC talk about his remarkable experience in the Sierra Leone conflict in 2000. It is one not to be missed.
Pathfinder editor, Mal Robinson conducted the interview with Steve and added, “the interview with Steve was incredible and his account of the astonishing battle with rebel soldiers was awe inspiring. I am thrilled this episode works in tandem with the announcement of the continuation of the project, with the ethos of ‘every day we remember, not just in November’ fully ensconced.”
The Steve Heaney “I am Tommy Atkins!” podcast will be released on Monday December 2.
