D-Day veteran recalls the 'sad sight of seeing so many bodies on the beach'

Telegraph, 06 Jun 2021
More than 100 Normandy veterans gathered to watch the opening of a memorial dedicated to those who took part in the D-Day landings 77 years ago.

The British Normandy Memorial records the names of the 22,442 servicemen and women under British command who died during the D-Day landings and the Battle of Normandy in the summer of 1944.

Veterans and their families gathered at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire on Sunday to watch the event remotely on a large screen and to mark the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

D-Day veteran Bernard Morgan, who was the youngest sergeant in the Royal British Air Force to take part in the landings, attended the ceremony in Staffordshire and recalled his experience.
