The Daily Mirror tells the story of William Mintram, a Staff Sergeant in the Royal Tank Regiment at the time of the D-Day landings, who was reunited with his brother in Folkestone. The Times, Express and Mirror all feature Sub Lieutenant Roy Cooper, a 101 year old D-Day veteran, who is still fit and active and is currently landscaping his own garden. The Daily Mail highlights the role played by 'paradogs' following reports that a parachuting dog named Glen, who was killed during the D-Day landings, will be commemorated in a new 50-acre Normandy Memorial site for animals.
