It is with sadness that I hear of the passing of George Batts MBE, Leg d’Hon. I interviewed him in 2015 when he spoke candidly about his life as a Corporal with the Royal Engineers. By his own admission, he was daft to ‘volunteer’ for a posting that appeared in the build-up to D-Day. George was instrumental in our Normandy project and went on to invest a huge amount of personal energy and time as a Patron of the Normandy Memorial Trust. He will be sorely missed by friends and family.
