Lionel "Bill" Bellamy was a 20-year-old regular officer with the 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars when they landed on "Gold" beach on 9 June 1944, three days after D-Day, as part of the Normandy invasion. He was in charge of an echelon squadron, providing back-up, fuel and ammunition for the frontline troops of the Seventh Armoured Division. But within days of landing, after several of his regiment's officers had been killed, he was put in command of a troop of Cromwell tanks. Bellamy pushed them forward, amid regular close combat with German forces, through Belgium, Holland and Germany, and eventually into the heart of Berlin. He was still only 21 when, as part of the initial occupying force, he was one of the first British officers to walk through Hitler's study, littered with the Führer's papers and photographs, some of which the young Bellamy guiltily stuffed into his battledress as souvenirs.
