D-Day - 75 Stories: Stanley Christopherson DSO MC TD

Stanley Christopherson was only in his early 30’s when he took command of The Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry. They went on to become one of the most decorated British units to serve during the Battle of Normandy.

His diaries: ‘An Englishman at War’ – edited by the best selling author and Historian James Holland – is seen as a definitive account of World War Two.

Today’s ‘D-Day 75’ story is Stanley Christopherson DSO MC TD, read by his son David.
