HSHD Ep:52 *Special* Glyn Interviews WW2 Royal Marine, 41 Commando, D Day Veteran, Ted Owens

In this very special episode of He Shoots, He Draws, Glyn interviews Royal Marine, 41 Commando, D Day Veteran, Ted Owens. Glyn photographed Ted early December and it is such an incredible story that we wanted to share this interview with you. Every once in a while we will have non design/photography episodes but they will be connected to what we do, in this case, Glyn’s World War 2 project he’s working on. We hope you enjoy this amazing tale of a soldier who has lived to be 94 and served our country.

  1. Absolutely fascinating interview Ted.
    So difficult to comprehend those times but honestly so very humbling to hear about it from the mouth of a true hero.
    Thank you for your service and for the sacrifices made by your entire generation.

  2. Keep it up Glyn. A great episode. The bugle ran chill up my spine. My dad was in England and France in the US army during WWII.

  3. Listening to your experiences really brings home what you went through as a young man. I really can’t comprehend going through any of that myself.

    Thank you Ted and to all who served and continue to serve this country that we are so fortunate to call home.

  4. well, all my first-world “problems I thought I had were suddenly put into perspective. I normally work as I listen to this podcast, but tonight I just sat and listened. Then reflected. I have great admiration and respect for those who serve, and you can add Mr. Owen to that list. This gentleman was wounded, not once, not twice, but three times, and after each time he was “patched up” and was sent back (as I’ assume many others were). Honestly I can’t even fathom the strength and courage it takes to be able to go back out there each time. Perhaps that is the difference between his generation and mine. Or perhaps it just speaks to his character. Mr. Owens, I don’t know you, will (unfortunately) never have the honor of meeting you, but I have the utmost respect for you, and want to say thank you for the sacrifices you made, and, that I’m sorry that you ever had to.
    Thank you for doing this Glyn, it truly is an inspiring and worthwhile project. Frankly I’m disappointed that there aren’t more comments here, but perhaps they are being left on the other platforms where people listen.
