Ron was barely 20 years old when he took the role of a motorcycle messenger conveying communications between army groups. He, together with his comrades ion arms, was responsible for saving the lives of French men and women, whilst putting their own lives in danger. Many of Ron’s fellow soldiers were killed during and after the D-Day operations and the years since have taken their toll of others. Ron, now nearly 90, still vividly recalls his part in D-Day.
