In this special interview, I’m speaking to George Batts MBE veteran of the D-Day Landings about his experience on Gold Beach during the conflict and why we’ve chosen the Normandy Memorial Trust as the IAB charity of the year.
Here are some of the questions I asked George
You were 18 when you landed on Golden Beach in Normandy, tell me about the lead up to this?
What were your initial feelings when you arrived?
What was the biggest thing you learnt from the whole experience?
How many of your friends did you lose?
What really imprinted in your memory?
With your planned education centre, what do you want others to learn?
