On BBC today they had a story about another recently honoured. BBC Linky
A nice little lady finally getting credit for what she did.
That generation was truly amazing. I used to work with a man here in the US. I knew him ten years before I found out he arrived in Normandy on D+1 and stayed close to the front all the way to Berlin. Previously all he had said was that he was a pay clerk. I had always imagined him sitting in an office at some army base. I only found out as he and the wife were going to Normandy for a vacation/reunion. He was very happy he went there. He had been assigned to another unit previously, a radar unit. By a fluke he was on funeral leave when his unit was sent to the Pacific and no one in his original unit survived.
