Train named in honour of D-Day hero Harry Billinge

A D-Day veteran who was one of the first British soldiers to land on Gold Beach in 1944 has said he is “deeply moved” to have a train named in his honour. Former Royal Engineer Horace “Harry” Billinge was just 18 when he stormed the beach in German-occupied Normandy during the landings on June 6 1944.
