Royal Navy - Normandy Veteran

Henry served on Landing Ship (Dock) HMS Eastway. This was a sea-going dry dock and was one of the largest amphibious assault vessels in the Second World War. The LSDs could be flooded in the stern to allow the boats etc., to be deployed directly into the water.

After the war, Henry went to work for the BBC.
