Jim Radford is a British folk singer and songwriter and also the youngest known participant in the Allied invasion of Normandy in June 1944.
He gained renewed prominence in 2014 when it was discovered by the BBC and the Royal British Legion that not only was he the youngest allied veteran of the Normandy invasion but that he had written a memorable song about his experiences as a young seaman on one of the Deep Sea Tugs that built the Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches (Gold Beach) – and he could sing.
Radford performed his song, The Shores of Normandy, three times at the Royal Albert Hall in London in the 70th anniversary year of the invasion (2014) and two of these concerts were televised by the BBC (the BBC's own 70th anniversary commemoration event in June and the British Legion Remembrance Day concert in November).
* The price listed as 'On The Door' is a single cash payment for this concert only which will be payable on the door, a ticket will NOT be issued. Entry will be subject to venue capacity and ticket holders will have priority.
