Ken Smith at Murton Swapmeet It is always a pleasure to see the York Normandy Veterans at Murton. So we were more than delighted when Ken Smith (92), who needs no introduction to DVLR enthusiasts, arrived at the above event with a BSA fold up bicycle similar to those that were brought ashore from landing craft on D Day. Ken said that most were discarded on the beach as conditions were hardly conducive to riding. He thoroughly enjoyed the event and he attracted a lot of attention.
