lf he had lived Mr Davies, who became known locally as Ambush Alf, would have turned 98 on Tuesday.
He escaped the German forces by jumping into a river and making his way to the beach at Dunkirk where he was rescued.
"He went into the river and if he had made the wrong decision it's hard to imagine how things would have turned out," said his Ms Owen.
