Royal Navy Commando Keith Mayor

Royal Navy Commando Keith Mayor

Play It Again... My Brother, My Friend

There is a new programme for BBC Radio Lancashire "Play it Again", in which Gerald Jackson takes a look back at some of the great programmes we have made over the past four decades.

He will be dipping into the archives every Thursday at 7.30pm and he kicks off with the story of a Lancashire woman who has dedicated her life to finding out how her brother became the only Englishman to die at the Belson concentration camp.

It is a remarkable story of the Royal Navy Commando Keith Mayor who died in the notorious  Belson concentration camp after being captured  while on a secret mission during  the Second World War.

His sister Sylvia talks for the first time about how she has spent a lifetime finding out what happened to Keith and  didn't tell her own family what she was doing. 

The programme "My Brother, My Friend", which was broadcast in April 2005, is presented by Chris Rider...

  • "Play it again" with Gerald Jackson is broadcast on Thursday evenings from 7:30pm on BBC Radio Lancashire.

The man in the photograph looks more like a Royal Navy man than a RAF man.

Paul, Haslingden
Great stuff, sensitively treated by Chris Rider. Thanks.
