D-Day veteran Jim Radford just knocked Ed Sheeran and Beiber from the top of the Amazon singles charts. He is the youngest know D-Day veteran and wrote this song back in 1969. Profits from the song will go to support the British Normandy Memorial.
“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.”
