Ken landed on the beaches of Normandy during WW2. A few days after the D-Day landings he was hit by a German shell losing his leg. “We were on an anti-tank battery and I got unlucky when a shell came in. I saw me boot with a sock go up in the air and I looked down and my foot were hanging on by bits of skin. It was like my leg had been put in a bucket of boiling hot water. The first thing I was given at the first aid station was a pot of sweet tea. But at the field hospital, they dressed my wound then amputated my leg." This veteran is now 99 years old. Thank you for your service Ken
