An experience that inspired his song "The Shores of Normandy” performed and televised by BBC at the Royal Albert Hall in London for the 70th anniversary year of the invasion (2014). He believes that war was necessary because we would have been invaded otherwise. However he objects to the unnecessary wars like Vietnam which he went to prison for protesting non-violently against. He also apposes the recent unnecessary wars against Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries that are not going to invade Britain.
