D-Day - 75 Stories: The Shores of Normandy

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

Jim, who is 90 years old, was a 15 year old ‘galley boy’ on D-Day.

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

With your help, we can we make Jim’s song No.1. Download from online music stores and from our website.

Here is Jim with the story behind his powerful song.

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.
