D-Day 75 Normandy 6th June 2019

June 8, 2019

I was in Normandy with The Normandy Memorial Trust for the D-Day 75 Events on 6th June 2019.

 

Early morning sunrise and commemoration of the new Normandy Memorial at Ver-sur-Mer with a few honoured guests - including Monty’s grandson and Churchill’s great grandson and family - then onto Bayeux and Prince Charles, culminating with a performance in Arromanches for The One Show (BBC) with the youngest veteran, Jim Radford, who was 15 and a galley boy on a tug making Mulberry harbour on the day.  He is now 90 and an amazing man - if you haven't yet downloaded it you can click the link here - all proceeds are for The Normandy Memorial Trust.

 

 

 

It was an extraordinary day and I felt so honoured to be there.  I was there for my Dad, Tom, my Uncle Fred and all our relations who gave so much of themselves during those awful times.  A truly humbling experience.
