An emotional D-Day veteran left viewers heartbroken during his appearance on Good Morning Britain today as he recalled devastating memories from the war.
Ted Cordery, 91, was interviewed on the sofa by hosts Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins about his time on the HMS Belfast.
Asked about D-Day, he said: "There was 100s and 100s of these aircraft and we knew that something was amiss…"
However he later teared up over the memories as said: "It annoys me when all these films are all ‘bang, bang, bang’ and they don’t…"
"Since the war I’ve lost my mates," he continued after being comforted by the GMB hosts. "I’ve seen the ashes go over the side of the HMS Belfast."
Ted is one of the vets set to sail on the ship to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
Viewers were in tears over Ted.
One tweeted: "HERO = Ted #GMB."
While another commented: " Ted, One of our ww2 heroes on. He still remembers everything. The raw emotion. They saved us. We need to do better with the freedoms they won for us, and honour them. #gmb Thank you for your service Ted."
