D-Day: Keeping the guns firing

Frank James, 95, from Newport landed in Normandy on the night of the D-Day landings.

After spending a night on board ship coming under fire, the 25-year-old supply driver for the Tank Corp, Royal Dragoon Guards took his load of ammunition onto the beach and onward to the drop-off point.

He had to return to the beaches to collect more ammunition to create an dump inland, from where he would take supplies to the units that needed it.
