Duncan and Nuala on Robert Elms show

Today, we were guests on Robert Elms’ show on BBC London, which had ‘GI Brides’ as its topic of the day. Earlier in the programme, Robert had broadcast a pre-recorded interview with Sylvia, which we’ll be uploading shortly.

Robert encouraged listeners to call in with their family stories of GI romances and GI brides, and received some fascinating responses. One man said that both his mother and his aunt had been dating GIs at the same time, although in the end only the aunt went through with an actual marriage and sailed off to America.
