    Britain's D-Day runaway Bernard Jordan tells his full amazing story | Mail Online

    Exactly like the original seaborne operation 70 years earlier, everything depended on secrecy.
    But now for the first time, we can tell the full extraordinary story of D-Day veteran Bernard Jordan’s one-man expedition to the beaches of Normandy which has captured the nation’s imagination as ‘The Great Escape’.
    ‘I can be very secretive when I want to be and when I set my mind to do something, I do it. This is what us Normandy veterans are like,’ said Mr Jordan, speaking for the first time.

    Great tale! All I can say, as a former Nursing Home Administrator, is, Damn the regulations! I would have helped him make his break!

    Me too. At his stage in life I would have helped him do just about anything he wanted.

    The home got a bit of a bum rap to be honest.

    They tried to get him on an official trip but as it was last minute they couldn't get him a seat.

    He was never banned from going, great tale though, well done Sir.
