THE BRITISH SOLDIER who spared Hitler. “When war erupted the 49 year old tried to rejoin his regiment to see to it that, ‘he didn’t escape a second time,’ [2] but failed the physical due to wounds received at the Battle of the Somme. Nonetheless he did his bit on the home front, volunteering wherever he could be of service but was always haunted by an act of decency to an indecent man. Henry Tandey VC DCM MM died without issue in Coventry in 1977 aged 86, in accordance with his wishes he was cremated and interred at the British Cemetery in Marcoing alongside fallen comrades and close to where he won his Victoria Cross 60 years earlier.”
