Antony Holland performs this shortened version of his one man play 'One Man in His Time' on Remembrance Day as a unique way of paying tribute to all those who serve, both past and present. Based on his stories of life in the British Army in North Africa during the Second World War, this offers a perfect alternative for those who want to pay tribute in a warmer drier location than the ceremony and parade at the Cenotaph.
