Project Main Details

No Bridge Too Far Ch 2 Slide 18 Harold Bare 
This is for a WWII documentary I am producing from my home office on a limited budget, which is dedicated to my father, a WWII combat engineer. I am going to sell via DVD sets (in chapters as it's completed this year) through The completed series will have six chapters, two which I am hoping to have ready within the next several weeks. My hope is to submit to public tv in the future, but it's unlikely to occur this year.

I am trying to obtain underwriters for my production. Currently am relying on the veterans and their families for contributions. I am the narrator, and several friends and colleagues are providing several of the voice-overs, but I am in serious need of more to complete the job.

There are approximately 20-25 veterans who will be portrayed as young WWII soldiers. Several (as is the case with Harold Bare), will have parts throughout the series. Some will only have a single featured part.

The parts included today, are everything I need to complete the first two chapters. So whoever is hired as "talent", must be available to continue Harold's role for the rest of the production this year, so keep that in mind.

No special accent is needed. Harold would be a young vet (18-25 years of age).

When reading the script, the name and unit are also read aloud, if indicated.

Script Details

***No special accent is needed. Harold would be a young vet (18-25 years of age).When reading the script, the name and unit are also read aloud, if indicated.

***Pronunciation: Algiers - Al-JEERZ 
“We passed the Strait of Gibraltar into the Mediterranean, and early in the morning of November 7, our ship, (the USS Thomas Stone), was struck by a torpedo. It hit the rear end of the ship and the explosion destroyed the ship's propeller and steering mechanism, leaving the ship dead in the water. The only casualties were nine sailors killed. One of the fleet destroyers was assigned to stay with our ship, and the invasion force sailed on to Algiers, about 150 miles to the east.”

“The ship carried about twenty-five Higgins assault landing craft, and after reviewing the situation, the infantry commander decided to load most of his troops into the landing craft, and sail 150 miles to Algiers, so they could participate in the invasion, even if they would be late. The landing craft were accompanied by the destroyer that had been assigned to guard our ship. We later learned that this “assault force” had gone only about one-third of the way to Algiers, when they had to abandon their landing craft because of rough seas and seasickness. They were taken aboard the destroyer and landed at Algiers after the port had been captured by the invasion fleet.”


==================== Later within same slide

“We were somewhat apprehensive because our ship was a “sitting duck”, without engine power. Our guardian destroyer had left us and we did not know what would happen next. About midnight, a ship approached us and we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was a sea-going tug, assigned to tow us to Algiers. We arrived there two days after the invasion. The Thomas Stone was beached, and probably sold for scrap after the war.”
