Harry Billinge: A Man In Full
A clip of the final minutes of this 11-minute Remembrance Day BBC interview with Harry Billinge, a 94-year-old D-Day veteran, has gone viral. The last two-and-a-half minutes are jaw-dropping, but the entire interview is deeply moving. Michael Brendan Dougherty tweeted, “The past is a different country, and he is its ambassador.” Very true. Here’s the whole thing. It’s like a spectral visitation from an eternal warrior. Harry Billinge speaks like a prophet. Try to get through it without tears.
