The Great War has meant a massive upheaval not just for those serving in the army and navy but also for the civilians on the Home Front. If you listen carefully, some days you can almost hear the great guns just over the English Channel, as they bombard the enemy trenches.
Even though it is more than 50 years old and has never been attacked, Fort Nelson stands guard over one of the most important ports in Great Britain. This vital link in the supply chain, which provides fresh troops and supplies to the Front, must be protected. And now there are new threats to worry about. Threats from the air. If the bombers come at night it will be a hard task to stop them.
Join the soldier as he mans the anti-aircraft guns overlooking one of the most important military bases in England and hear his side of the story. Will the bombers get through? Can they be stopped from destroying the city of Portsmouth and the naval base?
Find out about Fort Nelson's role in protecting the south coast as Great Britain once again faces the threat of invasion.
