Hi Jim, I'm researching a documentary about a veteran of the Worcestershire Regiment and he tells me that he landed on D-Day. I had spotted the discrepancy in the dates and asked him about it and he told me that he was part of an advance party. Your post has helped to confirm his story.

He's still very much with us.
