A Canterbury veteran's life-long fight to create a memorial to the 7,000 men who died on Hill 112 in Normandy in the weeks after D-Day in 1944.

Sergeant Gunner Albert Figg, from Canterbury, took part in the battle for Hill 112 in Normandy as the Allies pressed south after D-Day in 1944. It was one of the costliest battles of the war and one in which he lost many of his colleagues; he never forgot them. Albert spent the last 30 years of his life establishing a memorial on the crest of Hill 112

There will be a Q & A with the director after each performance.
