Missing D-Day veteran Bernard Jordan sang, danced and enjoyed a
pint on ferry to Normandy commemoration
  Mirror.co - June 8, 2014


D-Day escaper Bernard Jordan enjoyed a morale-boosting singalong with three vocalists on his way to the Normandy commemoration. The ex-Royal Navy officer, 89, sang and danced for 45 minutes on the crossing to France - and enjoyed a pint with a cycling group. Despite being alone he joined in with the on-board entertainment and also befriended a younger group of soldiers. Bernard, who could not remember what hotel he had booked into, shared hugs, dances and song with The Candy Girls, a 40s and 50s-themed vocal harmony trio. He told them: “If I was 70 years younger I wouldn’t know which one of you to ask to dance.” The Candy Girls have been providing entertainment on the crossings for Brittany Ferries and hit it off with Bernie, who was at the centre of a police search after leaving his care home in East Sussex.




Struggling to find meaning in the aftermath of World War I, man declared this long conflict, "The War to End All Wars." WWI was so horrific - in number of casualties, shattered families and divided nations - that humanity resolved to never again allow global warfare to threaten civilization. 70 years later we remain at war in other parts of the world, today honoring those who turned the tides of war at Normandy.

Since the journey of humanity first began, back in the dark ages, there has always been the eternal struggle for freedom with never ending wars. War results in the creation of new weapons which today include stealth technology, drones, surveillance, chemical warfare, among other covert projects that could annihilate the planet with the push of a button.
