Harold Mills has done decades of research on 3 family members who served in the 3 branches of the armed forces in WWII. He will speak to us about their experiences as he has recounted them in his three books (unpublished). These stories include the landing on Juno Beach on D-Day, the sinking of U 1006, and flight training of pilots on how to land in heavy fog and very poorly lit runways only by the use of instrumentation. Harold will show us pictures he has collected and tell the almost unbelievable stories that accompany them as soon as we can reschedule him.
