(Hour 3a)

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields

The segment began with the story of Pat Lally, for whom a square is named in Manchester.  Pat served aboard the aircraft carrier Liscome Bay, which was torpedoed and sunk off the Gilbert Islands in 1943.

Aboard also were two men from the west side of Manchester, and their story is one you will not want to miss.

This archive continued with a reading of the famous poem, “In Flanders Fields.”
