This year members of Defence Medical Group North had the amazing opportunity to accompany the D-Day Revisited charity and take D-Day veterans to Normandy. This was organised by Cpl Blakemore; Capt Krause, Cpl Dyson, Cpl Gibson, Pte Saru and I set off early morning of 2 June for a long trip down to Portsmouth picking up veterans on the way.

We arrived at Southwick Park, Portsmouth in the early evening to be told that we had 10 minutes to change into our No2s in order to receive HRH Prince Harry who was conducting a surprise visit to meet everyone before we embarked on our tour. Cpl Blakemore had to change in the Combi Van he was driving as the turnaround was that quick. Following a quick Royal reception, we were invited to dine in the D-Day Memorial Hall where there was the original map and plan of D-Day on the wall; this was also our first opportunity to meet and chat to the veterans. This is also the first time we knew what we were in for as a veteran (after a lot to drink) fell off his chair.
