The Man Who Worked On Sundays

Leslie Skinner was born in 1911 and ordained as a Methodist Minister in 1941, the same year he also married and was commissioned as an Army Chaplain where he initially served in the Middle East. On D-Day he was the first British Chaplain to land on the Normandy beaches. While attached to the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry, a territorial armoured regiment, he made it his self-appointed task to make sure no soldier was reported missing, if possible, and if dead given a Christian burial. He also refused to allow tank crews to recover the bodies from knocked-out tanks. His diary covers the period from D-Day to the end of the war.
