Bill recalls Thury-Harcourt where the Germans had burst a dam and flooded the area. It’s an area of intense fighting and he recalls his Bren Gun overheating. Soon after he’s hit by a piece of shrapnel and loses his sense of hearing. He’s offered a choice and it probably ensured that we were able to interview him 70 years later. A wonderful story Bill. Thank you.
