About WHO Founder Jack Beckett:
Born and bred in the village of Wickham in Hampshire, England – about 8 miles from Southwick House, (SHAEF headquarters in WWII), so the fascination was soon formed. Which is strange as my Grandfather hated Churchill and Hitler and my Grandfather was the first grown man I had ever seen cry, it was when I was a very very young man and I was asking him about D-Day.

Raised over £10,000 for the Normandy Veterans Association in 2008 with the kind help of the members of HMVF. The aim was to return 40 of our WWII veterans to Normandy for the 65th Anniversary of D-Day.
