A producer from swiss public radio (Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen) is currently preparing a nationwide broadcast about the 75th anniversary of D-Day. The producer is very interested in talking to a Normandy veteran. Please can email us if you are a veteran or know of a veteran who wouldn’t mind speaking to a reporter. I can then put you in contact with the producer over email. Many thanks.

Hector Duff, MM, BEM, Leg.d’honneur, presented SONT Young Historian Project certificates to year 10 pupils at Ramsey Grammar School IOM, who were commended for their entries for the 2018 YHP Awards. Hector celebrated his 99th birthday that same week.
We have been approached by a production company making a documentary for National Geographic. The programme will focus on key events that took place on D-Day. There are two stories that they are hoping to find more information about.
The first is the 7th Parachute Battalion, who jumped into Normandy in the early hours of D-Day. The other is about the Staffordshire Yeomanry, who successful halted the only major German counterattack that took place on D-Day. They would love to speak to any veterans or read their account of D-Day.
