D-Day veteran, Major Jos Mark, describes those he lost in Normandy.
He explains his sadness at learning that those he lost were family men. In this clip, he describes how he’d leave a cross on the grave of friend and Colonel, Owen Dent, each time he visited the grave.
He also lost a Sergeant, Joseph, who he later found out also had four children. He said that the men rarely knew about each other’s personal lives.
