Reflections on D-Day
Roy Cadman, 3 Commando, 1st Special Service Brigade, recounts his experience of the Invasion of Normandy.
Trooper Roy Cadman signed up to fight at just 17 years old, and went on to serve in the African and European theatres during the war. During the war he was shot, captured, and escaped through enemy lines.
On the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, RUSI and YouGov have conducted a special opinion poll to assess current public attitudes to the event. The poll indicates that only half of Britain knows the significance of D-Day, a source of irony amid today’s polarised politics, says Sir Hew Strachan.
