Bernie Bristoll: “That’s what it’s all about”

IWM Volunteer Bernie served on HMS Belfast as a Radio Operator and now regularly volunteers on board, bringing the history of the ship alive by sharing his stories with visitors.

Volunteers like Bernie make an essential contribution to IWM's work – and the support from members helps ensure we can continue to tell these important stories for generations to come.
