Every life has a story to tell – Jack Bell

Chapter House proudly presents a short documentary in the “Every life has a story to tell” series. Jack was born on the 20th of December 1917, the same day the second referendum for conscription was defeated for World War 1. 23 years later Jack enlisted to serve in the Second World War with the Australian Air Force in 1939. Jack’s plane was shot down over Libya, and for the next three years, Jack was a prisoner of war in Germany. Recently, Chapter House interviewed Jack to talk about his first 100 years, from his first kiss to being shot down over Libya to discussing his life in today’s world. Chapter House is proud to release the Jack Bell documentary. A remarkable man, a great Australian.
