97-Year-Old Veteran Attends “Dunkirk” Movie Premiere. Walks Out Of Theater And Stir He Causes Makes Headlines

For most people, The Battle of Dunkirk is just another page in the history book. But for 97-year-old Ken Sturdy, it’s an event that left him with scars that never heal and memories that he will never be able to get out of his head.
As you may know, The Battle of Dunkirk which took place in Dunkirk (Dunkerque), France, during the Second World War was an important battle fought between the Allies and Nazi German. The battle that took place in the spring on 1940 is one of the most surprising events of the war.
Ken Sturdy, a 97-year-old World War II veteran, was one of the soldiers who survived the battle. And now he got to see a harrowing film about those horrific events he experienced as a 20-year-old signalman with the Royal Navy.
Dunkirk, a movie by Inception director Christopher Nolan, focuses on the desperate plan to evacuate hundreds of thousands of Allied troops across the English Channel after they were trapped by advancing German soldiers.
After seeing the motion picture, the former Navy said the movie was more realistic than he anticipated going in “I never thought I would see that again. It was just like I was there again,” he told in an interview for Calgary Global News.
