‘The beginning of the end’: Navy veteran remembers D-Day from the sea

A veteran of the Tribal Class Destroyer HMCS Huron, Alex Polowin participated in some of the most decisive naval battles of the Second World War. On D-Day, his group of destroyers played a vital role in protecting vulnerable allied landing craft from enemy vessels. Never far from his mind was the fate of his relatives living under Nazi occupation in his birthplace of Lithuania. Special thanks to the Juno Beach Centre (https://www.junobeach.org/)
