War veterans take part in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Around 300 veterans are travelling back to France on a six-day cruise sponsored by the Royal British Legion, the U.K.’s largest veterans charity. They visited Dunkirk remembering the evacuation of British forces after 1940’s France’s fall. Veteran Les Budding was accompanied by a deceased D-Day veteran’s son. Philip Collins, son of the late Frederick Collins believes that Budding saved his father’s life. The veterans will be back in Portsmouth for Britain’s main D-Day ceremony on 5 June.
