    Fred Glover is doing a tandem skydive jump for his 90th Birthday to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

    He jumped on D-Day as part of 9th Parachute Battalion which assaulted Merville Battery. He was wounded and taken prisoner; he managed to escape from Hopital de la Pitie in Paris with help from the French Resistance. He was also involved in the Ardennes and Operation Varsity.
