Wilfred Burns

Wilfred Burns (1917- 25 September 1990) was a British composer of film scores.

Born Bernard Wilfred Harris he was severely wounded in WW2 in 1940. Shot in the left elbow, right hand and left eye he eventually recovered from his injuries and remained a POW until repatriated on medical grounds in 1943. His recovery involved dealing with the complete loss of his left eye along with restoring vision to his right. The injury to his left elbow left that arm shorter than his right and the injury to his right hand required therapy to restore strength and dexterity to the fingers. After recuperation in several German prison hospitals he was able to play the piano again.
