Escape from the Deep

The story of the escape of Ldg. Stoker John Capes (sole survivor from the submarine HMS Perseus’ in 1941 after she had been mined off Cephalonia) and his subsequent adventures is being broadcast on:

BBC Radio 4 Friday 2nd December. 11:00:

Escape from the Deep. Louis de Bernieres uncovers the greatest submarine escape story of World War II.

The programme will include an interview with his daughter Julie.

(According to a contemporary of his in my SMA Branch this guy was one hell of a character and it would be a bonus if some of his post-war 'scrapes' were also broadcast, too.)
