D-DAY 75th ANNIVERSARY

Lest we forget .....




What a shame the anniversary of this world-changing event is blighted by endless pictures of royalty and Trump.
It took me ages to find a picture of a veteran on the BBC website. Disgraceful.

The politicians come and go, but these dignified people are still here and still living with their memories.


Below is one of my favourite quotes from a Siegfried Sassoon poem ...

You Marshals, gilt and red
You Ministers and Princes, and Great Men,
Why can't you keep your mouthings for the dead?
Go round the simple cemeteries; and then
Talk of our noble sacrifice and losses
To the wooden crosses.
