Arthur's D-Day story

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, and it being National Storytelling Week recently, we thought we’d ask Arthur for some recollections of that fateful period.

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