Frederick Glover and Ted Pieri, two veterans of British airborne divisions, made their big jump, Saturday, August 20, 2016, to the battery of Merville. For a good cause…
One is called Frederick Glover. The other, Ted Piery. They are both veterans of British airborne divisions and are aged 90 years. An age that did not prevent them, Saturday, August 20, 2016, to jump in parachute in tandem, on the battery of Merville.
The goal ? Raise funds for the London charity The Taxi Charity, which organizes actions for veterans. But also an opportunity to pay tribute to their comrades.
