I never knew my father as he was killed in action in Normandy on 7th August 1944 three months before I was born. i am very proud of him and have tried to live my life so that had he survived he would have been proud of me. i have two sons and four grandsons and so the Scott name goes on. My only regret is that he never was able to share this. On the 50th anniversary of D Day i took my two sons to Tilly San Sotres cemetary in Normandy to see their grandads grave and it was a very moving experience for us. His grave was one of twenty Gordon Highlanders none of whom were over 22 years of age. Who knows what they would have achieved in their lives had they survived. One thing they did achieve in their sacrifice was the freedom we continue to enjoy today. God bless them all may they never be forgotten and may they rest in eternal peace.
