Former soldiers in Wales are being urged to share their stories for a new museum project in Normandy.

The new exhibition will document veterans' memories of the Battle of France.

Their experiences are being recorded by Tom Sellen, from Pembrokeshire, who's been working in France for the past two years.

Mr Sellen, 25, will return home with his French colleague Florent Plana to interview veterans across the UK for a WW2 exhibit at the Centre des Relations Franco-Britannique in Normandy.

The exhibit will open in 2019 and is being built on "Sword" beach, where the D-Day landings took place.

Mr Sellen is spending a week travelling across South and Mid Wales to interview veterans.

He is asking for any willing veterans of the Battle of France to contact them and share their stories.
