D-Day veteran recalls moment he was injured, the soldier who helped him
Ed Peck was a member of the Canadian Scottish Regiment during The Second World War. He remembers being stuck in Canada as a basic training instructor when he really wanted to join the fight in Europe. He asked his father, Cy Peck, a WWI soldier and Victoria Cross recipient, for a favour: to use his influence to get him into the fight. He landed in Europe during the invasion of Normandy, serving until he was injured by a bullet in The Netherlands.
