D-Day veteran will 'never forget' sailor saving his life

A D-Day Royal Navy veteran has told Good Morning Britain how he will "never forget" how his life was saved by a fellow sailor who pulled him from the sea after his ship exploded.

Henry "Buzz" Brown, 89, rescued Harry Card, 88, from the Normandy sea after his ship, HMS Swift, was blown in two by an oyster mine on June 24 1944.

However, the two were separated after Buzz took Harry to the hospital. They did not see each other again, until 60 years later, Harry recognised Buzz at a veterans trip organised by the Black Cab Charity.
