Frederick Lennart Bentley (born 1924), a British veteran of World War II (WW2).  He was blinded by a German grenade during a night patrol near Caen in Normandy. ."My comrades left me behind.  That was how it was: you didn't help the wounded.  You had to look after yourself.  I managed to reach my own lines on my own.  If the Germans had found me, they would have certainly shot me.  You don't give the wounded a bed, you bury them.  I would have done the same myself.  People who weren't in the war can't understand that.  You're living with death 24 hours a day."."The war was over for me.  I worked for 33 years at the Leyland factories as a mechanical engineer.  I inspected machines by touch.  I had work, I married and I had four children.  I had a good life after the war.". CHECK with MRM/FNA
