A Dunkirk veteran, from Llandudno, who narrowly escaped one of the Second World War’s worst atrocities has died at the age of 97.
Alf Davies was in a convoy of trucks ambushed by the Germans in the French town of Wormhout in May 1940.
Soldiers from the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler killed around 80 British soldiers and French POWs in the town by throwing grenades into a barn where they were being held.
Alf, who was nicknamed “Ambush Alf” on his return to his home town of Llandudno, survived by jumping into a river and escaping to the beaches at Dunkirk.
Speaking in 2014 Alf said it was 'was absolute chaos'.
Alf and his two friends managed to get to the beaches at Dunkirk, using a motorbike they found.
The three men escaped on board a ship.
Alf remembered nothing until he awoke in England.
After the war he worked repairing roads.
He married Olwen in 1946.
Llandudno is now twinned with Wormhout.
