D-DAY has always held a special significance for Southsea’s Roy Couzens – it was the day he was born.

Mr Couzens was born just as his father and thousands of other Allied troops went ashore in Normandy.

His wife, Diane, 69, said they would be celebrating his 70th birthday today with pride. She said: ‘The house is adorned with Union flags and photos about D-Day from The News.’

Mr Couzens worked as a postman before he retired.

His father, Reginald, served in the Royal Artillery and was originally from Farlington, Portsmouth.
