Hawtin’s Tales: A Soldier’s Life - The Valley Of The Shadow
Hawtin Mundy was a remarkable storyteller. Born in 1896, his memories inspired two books and a documentary play. Brad Bradstock devised a one-man show using Hawtin’s words that got a rave review at the Edinburgh Festival. Here he tells Hawtin’s memories as a solider in the First World War. In this episode Hawtin’s memories of the second battle of Arras continue, and are accompanied by Paul Clark’s song ‘The Valley of the Shadow’, inspired by Hawtin’s words.
