27 D-Day Veterans remember - Bennett and Cheall, WWII
92 year-old Royal Marine Roy Bennett remembers his WWII Juno beach landing and more:
"There was a horrendous noise as we landed, people were dying leaving the landing craft ..."
Bill Cheall re-visits France and Gold beach on the 50th anniversary of D-Day in 1994.
"We arrived 50 years later at 12.15 hrs and it was still drizzling with rain, and windy, just like it was on D-Day, WW2".
Great, unpublished history!
