Manawatu Standard: 'Palmerston North Man Turns Back the Clock to D Day'

"Seventy five years ago, Desmond Stanford looked out over the bleak sands of Normandy, in France, wondering if he would still be alive that night," the Manawatu Standard reported this week.

The article, written by Mervyn Dykes, continues: "This year, aged 96, he will attend a D Day commemoration, remembering the first-day landing on June 6, 1944. With him, as carer, will be his son, Peter, 69, who lives in Palmerston North after following his dad into a sea-going career as an engineer."
