Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland recently celebrated a year of coffee mornings at their Thorncroft location. There we met 95-year-old Samuel ‘Arthur’ Thompson.

Given his status as a D-Day veteran, we thought we’d ask Arthur for some recollections from that fateful time.

Watch the video to hear about some of Arthur's experiences as a younger man. Arthur also features in our video about our visit to Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland.
