Aged 17 Dennis Alcock lied about his age to join the Royal Navy and fight in the Second World War.
Serving as a Convoy Signalman he helped ferry hundreds of British troops to landing craft on D-Day as they prepared to land on the beaches of Normandy.
I remember helping one soldier climb down and he threw me a tin of food out of his rations as a thank you.
Voyage of Remembrance
Travelling on a specially chartered ship, they returned to the beaches they landed on 75 years ago to remember their comrades who never came home.
