Lance Sergeant Harold Preece DCM
Lance Sergeant Harold Preece DCM; is the true story of a WWII hero; decorated by King George VI. A man raised in poor circumstances who simply wanted a better life for himself and his family.
During the difficult times of the 1930’s depression, work was hard to obtain so Harold enlisted in the Royal Engineers in order to learn a trade.
Travelling throughout the Middle and Far East, he began his career in building. Rising through the ranks due to his hard work and determination, but the advent of World War II interrupted his plans.
Marrying his childhood sweetheart just months prior to the declaration of war, Harold was sent to Norway where he was wounded trying to carry out his duty.
Like most men and women of that era, he never spoke of what happened during those terrible years.
This is the account of that adventure as told by Harold when in his later life.
With contributions from his widow, Phyllis, it is a story of bravery and passion; of heroism and determination to overcome the odds.
It is not just a soldier’s story, but an account of two people’s determination to make life count and the heart-warming knowledge that love can overcome any obstacle.
