Two WWII Veterans Meet

James Ruddock Broyd (G46-52) writes : By chance I spotted two WWII Veterans standing not far from each other at the Fowler Pavilion opening on 21 October 2017 and I put them together in what seems was a first meeting . On the left is Ken Mayhew  (R29-34) who reached age 100 earlier in the year and landed on Sword Beach on the first day of the Normandy Landings on 6 June 1944 with the Suffolk Regiment and on the right is David Brook (S36-40) age 94 who was a Glider Pilot on the main push over the Rhine in Operation Varsity  on 24 March 1945 and edited the GPRA Eagle magazine for 30  years.
