Former Paratrooper Is To Take His First Jump Since 1944

Posted on September 18, 2018

Harry Read, from Bournemouth, was a wireless operator in the 6th Airborne Division when he jumped into Normandy in the early hours of 6 June 1944. Now 74 years on and the war veteran has completed a training jump from Old Sarum airfield in Wiltshire to raise money for the Salvation Army. He wants to take part in the 75th D-Day anniversary commemorations in June next year by jumping back into Normandy with the Red Devils.
