It's one thing to learn about Pearl Harbor in the history books. It is a completely different thing to go, see, and experience the history.
December 7th, 1941, "A date which will live in infamy". The world was forever changed. Honoring the ones who gave it all at #PearlHarbor . #dday#hawaii#learnthroughtravel#goseeexperience
True Valour is directed by @directornicpott, an up and coming director and producer in Manchester. This is Nicole's second feature to date and she is currently working on other smaller projects before this. We're excited to have a woman behind the magic for this World War 2 feature!
Jack was 29 when he drowned at sea. He’d served on many ships. Patrick, his friend, was 10 years younger and it was his first time at sea, but they’d formed a close friendship through the countless practice runs leading up to D-Day. When their ship went down, Patrick could see Jack struggling to stay afloat without a life jacket. Patrick went to throw him his, knowing he was about to be lifted out of the water, but as he did, another wounded sailor grabbed it in desperation and pulled them both down. By the time Patrick came to, Jack was gone. John Henry Phillips, a conflict archaeologist and historian who formed a bond with Patrick on a visit to Normandy, made a promise to Patrick, the last survivor, that he’d not only find the shipwreck, but would build a memorial to Jack and the other 35 men who lost their lives that day. To do that, he needs your help. This story doesn’t have to end with Patrick, with your help, it can live forever.
This great adventure is being told in a brilliant documentary, No Roses On a Sailor's Grave, and filming has begun. Time is running out and help is needed to find this vanished piece of history and fulfill 93-year-old WWII British Navy veteran Patrick Thomas’ dream to finally honour his drowned shipmates.
