I have just found this thread and thanks to Leadfinger, clicked on the link to Jim's rendition at the Albert Hall.
Now that what I call a folk song, written and sung by Jim himself from his experience on D Day, so moving. My Dad was in Lancashire bombers during the war, flying a great number of missions over Germany and the rest of Europe like Jim my dad was very lucky to survive.
Thanks Jim for your story and I intend to sing your song at the Wath Folk Club, here in Yorkshire at next sundays sing around. I sang Keith Marsden's St Aubin Sur Mer last night in remembrance, but wish I had discovered your song, Jim, a little earlier.
Thanks Jim for your song and for your brave actions on D Day and after.
