A short film inspired by the letters between Gilbert Bradley and Gordon
Bowsher during the second world War. Two men who were in love.
While on military training during World War Two, Gilbert Bradley was in
love. He exchanged hundreds of letters with his sweetheart - who
merely signed with the initial "G". More than 70 years later, it was
discovered that G stood for Gordon.
At the time, not only was homosexuality illegal, but those in the armed
forces could be shot for having gay sex. Some of Britain's gay soldiers
after risking their lives for their country were persecuted and jailed by
the military authorities.
This short piece has been made celebrate those men and women.
