Remembering George Meredith

We are saddened to hear that one of four remaining York Normandy Veterans, George Meredith, passed away this week at the age of 92.

Mr Meredith signed up for active service in London aged 17 and became a driver in the Royal Army Service Corps.

It was an honour to meet George and hear his wartime memories at our ‘Bringing Conflict Home’ event in May.  Our thoughts are with his loved ones.
