Video: WWII veteran Bill Gladden interviewed on Talk TV

The Ministry of Defence is planning major commemorations for the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings this year.

Veterans of the Normandy campaign will be central to the official events on 6 June 2024.

The Royal British Legion is inviting these veterans to register their interest in attending the commemorations.

On D-Day in 1944, the UK, the US, and their allies launched a combined assault on Nazi-occupied France, marking a crucial step toward liberating northwest Europe from Nazi control.

Peter Cardwell speaks with 100-year-old veteran Bill Gladden, who fought in the war and with Dick Goodwin of the Taxi Charity, who will be taking Bill and fellow commrades to Normandy for the event.
