John Pinder

On his forth and final trip from his ‘Higgins Boat’ wreaked more than 100 yards from the Normandy shore, John Pinder did as he had done each time; Despite being wounded he pulled the helpless and wounded to shore, while bringing with him all the parts of the radio that was vital to his company of men. While dying from his wounds he assembled the radio and in doing so many others lived another day, another week, a full lifetime.

John Pinder’s parents were presented the ‘Medal of Honor’ for the bravery of their son from a grateful nation. Like so many he gave his all that we might have all that we enjoy today.
