Jim Radford: The Shores of Normandy
Just in case you weren't aware, World War 2 / D-Day Veteran Jim Radford has recently released this song in order to raise money for the Normandy Memorial Trust.
Taken from the NMT website:
In 1944 Jim Radford was a 15 year old ‘galley boy’ serving with the Merchant Navy on the Empire Larch.
On the morning of 6th June, his first deep sea trip took him to Normandy to help build the Mulberry Harbour, allowing the Royal Navy to transport personnel, vehicles and supplies onto the beaches.
25 years later Jim returned to find a very different scene. Children were playing where soldiers had died and Jim was moved to tears. His emotional song tells that story.
Jim is releasing his music to raise funds for the British Normandy Memorial.
