75th Anniversary of D-Day

Events are taking place today to mark the Normandy landings on the 75th Anniversary of D-Day.

A lone piper marked the moment that the first British soldier landed in Normandy on D-Day in 1944 during World War 2.

There is now a permanent memorial in Normandy, the first of its kind there, to honour the troops who were under British command on that day. Many of them never returned. We must always remember the huge sacrifices made by so many for our freedom.
