World War One Veterans voices: Pte Donald Price

Remembrance Day this year has special resonance this year as it also marks the centenary of the early months of World War One.

All the soldiers from Wales who returned are now dead but the stories of those who survived were recorded for the archives of the Imperial War Museum in the 1980s.

Here is an extract from Donald Price, from Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan. Before the war he was working as an apprentice in the fur trade in Manchester.

He was a private serving with the 20th and 13th Battalions of the Royal Fusiliers throughout the war.

He speaks of ending up in a latrine pit after getting isolated in high wood.

You can hear more of the archive interview on the Imperial War Museum website.
