Ken Small first discovered the existence of Exercise Tiger after he took up beachcombing in 1969. From there, Ken dedicated the next 35 years of his life to honouring the young men who perished in the disastrous exercise. Pulling a Sherman tank from the seabed, Ken created a memorial to those who died and started to share their story, and his, with the world. The Forgotten Dead was originally published in 1988, bringing both Exercise Tiger and Ken's efforts to light. Ken sadly passed away in 2004 after a long struggle with cancer. Today, people from all over the world travel to Torcross to see Ken's tank and remember the tragedy of Exercise Tiger.
