    This month's commemorations of the 70th anniversary of D-Day were an opportunity to remember those that gave their lives to liberate France and the rest of Europe from Nazi tyranny, and to sincerely thank the surviving veterans that served on those momentous days.

    The Expeditionary Force that mustered just off the south coast in the early hours of 6th June 1944 were a collective of nations, predominately British, American and Canadian along with displaced Europeans and groups from around the British Empire. These men were united in their desire not for glory, but simply to get the dangerous job done and then return safely to their families. Their humble willingness to answer such a call as they did is an example to us all, and they represent what incredible feats can be achieved when countries join together in a common cause. It is hard to comprehend their bravery, or how much we owe them.
