The Unknown Warriors

D-Day Veteran - Bill Evans

Welshman, Bill Evans was in the thick of it in Normandy after being part of the world's largest ever amphibous landing, D Day on the 6th June, 1944. He landed on Gold Beach in the morning, aboard a landing craft. Before he was called up he was working in the factories in Coventry and was there during the terrible Blitz on the city.

 

In the years following the war, Bill returns regularly to visit the graves of his friends that never made it home.
