D-Day veteran Ted Owens is celebrating winning a Gold award at the New York Festival of TV and Film.
The series LEST WE FORGET in which two schoolchildren travelled to France, the Netherlands and Germany with Ted was given the special prize in a documentary category.
The Royal Marine Commando was hit by a shell on D-Day and almost died – but returned to France to fight on. He later fought in major battles in the Netherlands.
The friendship between the two schoolchildren and Ted – who is 95 – is at the heart of the series, which you can still view online for free.
