Apart from a few fragmentary stories, Griff Rhys Jones's father never talked about his time as a medical officer during the Second World War. In this documentary, the actor and comedian explores the stories of Africans and Asians who fought for the Allies, travelling first to Ghana and then to the jungles of Burma in the company of 90-year-old veteran Joshua.
