Emma was honoured to record a song for the funeral of British veteran Alan King. Alan was in the East Riding Yeomanry as part of the 27th Armoured Brigade. He was one of the first to land on Sword Beach on D-Day. His life expectancy after landing was one hour. He survived the Battle of Normandy, and advanced through Northern France and took part in the Liberation of the Netherlands. Emma met him during veterans events in France, the Netherlands, and the U.K.
