I was brought to tears as I watched this 98 year old man talk about the movie Dunkirk. Ken Sturdy is from Calgary and he and his family went out watch the movie premiere last Friday.
He said he was instantly transported back to the beach where more than 68,000 British soldiers were captured or killed during the battle and retreat and over 300,000 were rescued over nine days.
The Battle of Dunkirk took place in 1940 during the Second World War between the Allies and Nazi Germany in Dunkirk, France.
Calgarian Ken Sturdy, dressed in a jacket adorned with medals, viewed the movie and was impressed by what he saw.
“I never thought I would see that again. It was just like I was there again,” Sturdy said. Take a look at this real and somewhat raw video.
