Richard and Thomas Daley: brothers from Deptford, a tragedy in France

Interview transcript and photographs


    • In the interview attached, Richard Daley, originally from Deptford, Southeast London, recalls his father Thomas Daley's postwar memories and an important family tragedy that he would not talk about; Richard investigates the effect the death of his father's brother - Richard's namesake - had on Thomas, who apparently enlisted underage, embarking on a personal mission to find Richard's resting place in France.
