D-Day Veteran, Harry Reid, to parachute into Normandy 75 years after first landing

Harry Read is 95-years-old but his eyes are sparkling with excitement as he talks about his plans to parachute in to Normandy for the D-Day celebrations.

He will climb into a Dakota plane at Duxford Airfield on Wednesday and fly across the English channel just as he did in 1944 - one of only two D-Day veterans who will make a parachute jump to mark the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion.

Harry Reid, along with all the soldiers who fought at D-Day and in WW2, are incredible people. We at ADL Smartcare are so grateful for the sacrifice of all those soldiers across WW2, and we particularly remember those who sacrificed their lives for others on D-Day.
