If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you have probably heard me mention Uncle Charlie, my Dad’s brother who died in World War II. I wrote about the events that lead to his death in The Sinking of the Liscome Bay.
Since I wrote that post, some family stories and new records have come to light. I’ve been able to reshape the timeline and narrative a bit.
I decided it was time to give Uncle Charlie’s another airing, this time as a video.
This is the story of Charles John Lassalle.
Remembering him and all those who served but didn’t return home.
