Ken Cooke

Briton Ken Cooke was in the 7th Green Howards infantry, and at the tender age of 18 was thrown into action for the very first time storming Gold Beach on D-Day 6th June 1944 in the very first waves of attack. 6th and 7th GH together with 5 East Yorks together formed 69 Brigade, part of 50 Div
And as we threaded our way through the minefield of his memories, the stories just seemed to keep getting better and better. Now in his nineties, Ken is still active and involves himself in all sorts, as well as being featured in an award winning play, Bomb Happy.
