We’ve been exploring the Juno Beach and Canadian sectors today. Great visit to the Juno Beach Centre, Radar Musee at Douvres as well as a walk through the beautiful Douvres la Deliverande. Hitting Gold Beach sector tomorrow.
Their names shall liveth ever more.
Right on Sword Beach we have this great looking memorial to the men of Cdt Kieffer, Free French Commandos of No 4 Commando. The first Frenchmen to land in France on D-Day.
A but further down the sea front in Lion sur Mer we have a series of memorials to the 3rd British Division.
Just got my poppy from the Royal British Legion stand in the Regents Arcade in Cheltenham. Everytime i come here I am always struck by the town’s memorial to The Fallen during the Boer War. A beautiful statue of a soldier in colonial gear with rifle overturned and head bowed.
