Episode 05 Cuban Missile Crisis - Gerry's Tale

Welcome to the 5th episode of the American Years Revisited Podcast.
In this episode Gerry Pursley shares a first-hand account of active service on the Proteus at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis. With no warning the Proteus left the Holy Loch and headed for the North Atlantic. The ship wasn’t quite sea ready as they left in such a hurry, this lead to all sorts of situations that you’ll hear Gerry describing in rich detail.
You’ll hear the odd ringing noise in the background of this episode, for which we apologise, but it doesn’t take anything away from the story.
