Remember Them

Seventy-five years ago this morning, thousands of soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy.

The story of the liberation of Europe began there. Too many other stories ended there.

It is easy to trivialize the event.

It is equally easy to consign it to the ash-heap of history.

This is probably the last major D-Day anniversary in which Veterans of that day will be present.

Most of them are in their nineties, few will survive another decade.

Remember them
