  1. Remembering you on this day the 80th anniversary of D Day dicky was my father’s friend as a young lad growing up in Crewe.
    My father Raymond Farr also from Crewe who served on the HMS Rodney during the war.

  2. Thank you, Nicola, for writing. My father, Eric Heathcote, and Roger Kelly’s father, Chris Kelly, have both written warmly of Richard “Dicky” Parr. And, sadly, both were dug in on Omaha Beach beside him when he was killed by flying shrapnel. Eric visited Dickie’s parents after the war and paid his respects.
