What a day to remember

Our life in France - D Day

Indeed it has been a day to remember, watching all of le débarquement de Normandie (D Day landings) on French television I have to say they did us proud.

French President Francois Hollande has led the D-Day 70th anniversary tributes by remembering those who died on a day that "changed the world". He said France would never forget what it owed them,

It was very moving watching all the old servicemen commemorating the 70th Anniversary and hearing them say it will probably be the last time any of them can make the journey as they are mostly in their 90's, so sad that a generation is coming to an end.

Today I felt so very proud to be British

Lets hope we never forget the ultimate sacrifice these very brave servicemen paid to keep us free.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
