D-DAY - 75 STORIES: Private Walter Harbach

Thursday 6 June marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

22,442 people from over 30 countries gave their lives whilst serving with British units on D-Day and during the Battle of Normandy.

The Normandy Memorial Trust is building the British Normandy Memorial to commemorate their heroism and sacrifice.

We’re telling some of their stories every day until 6 June.

Today’s story: Private Walter Harbach.

The ‘22,442 Sacrifice for Freedom Campaign’ is raising funds to complete the British Normandy Memorial. You can donate to the campaign by visiting this link.
