7 D-Day Diary of D Gray Pt 2
War memoirs of a WW2 military medal hero
"Cognac, Calvados and kisses!"
The previous episode of the diary ended with Company Sergeant Major Gray winning the Military Medal. His battalion, the 7 Green Howards, had landed on Gold Beach on D-Day 6 June and advanced some distance into the dangerous French countryside.
With many comrades already dead or wounded, CSM Gray must push on further into WWII Europe with Holland as the next destination. More hazards and humour await our heroes ...
Great unpublished history!
