Back in September 2019, three Junior Boys in Year 6 embarked upon a project that aimed to produce a film to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

Dhilan Jacobs, Henry Hughes and Rith Narla began the project by interviewing veteran and Old Boy Kenneth Lee. They hoped to gain an insight into what life was like for a soldier fighting in the front line during World War Two. As well as answering all of their questions, Kenneth shared his own personal experiences of being in the army, which inspired the boys to write a short film script.

Seven months on, the project had progressed and adapted to the limitations of lockdown. The film script became a story and an amateur illustrator, Ellis Shuma, volunteered to create some pictures to accompany the text. A number of boys, including Advaith Govindu, Dhilan Jacobs, Aashan Subhani, Xavier Jones and Zain Burrill, worked extremely hard to narrate the story and created a fantastic ebook.
