It is difficult to believe that it is 70 years since the troops went ashore on the Normandy beaches and the liberation of Europe from the National Socialist horror began. Like most of my generation, I grew up being taught by, or knowing men who fought in the second World War, and even one or two who actually took part in D-Day itself. The photo below shows HM the Queen, laying a wreath at the Memorial in Normandy. My thanks to Defence Images for posting it on Facebook.
We will remember them.
