Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday May 30th.

This week on ‘Where the road takes me, John Greene brings the three part programme on the sinking of the Lusitania to a conclusion.

In programme three, we outline the remaining years in the lives of the two protagonists, Capt. Bill Turner of the Lusitania and Capt. Walter Schweiger of submarine U-20.
