D-Day: Watching your mates gunned down

British D-Day veteran Ken Scott, 97, poses for a portrait wearing a replica World War II uniform at his home in Royal Wootton Bassett on May 13, 2014ROYAL WOOTTON BASSETT (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Scared stiff but with nowhere to hide, Ken Scott tried to block out the sight of his comrades being gunned down as he pushed up the Normandy beach on D-Day. Suppressed for many years, the memories are fresh in Scott’s mind as he prepares to return to France next month for the 70th anniversary commemorations of D-Day. As one of 130,000 Allied soldiers who landed in France on June 6th, 1944, he was part of an invasion that would turn the tide of World War II. Staring out the window of his bungalow in Royal Wootton Bassett, a small town in southern England, Scott is almost pleading, as if he is still trying to justify his survival.
