Story 61: The Shores of Normandy

Today the Trust released the official D-Day 75 single ‘The Shores of Normandy’ by Royal Navy veteran Jim Radford.

Jim, now in his nineties, was a 15 year old ‘galley boy’ on D-Day.

Jim’s song raised funds for the British Normandy Memorial which was inaugurated on 6th June, the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, by the Prime Minister and French President.

Here is Jim with the story behind his powerful song.
