D-Day Commemorations

D-Day Commemorations

D-Day veterans of the Normandy Landings can now register to take part in commemorations for June next year.

Veterans of D-Day are being invited to register with the Royal British Legion to take part in the 75th anniversary commemorations in June next year. Plans for significant commemorations are being organised for D-Day 75 by the Royal British Legion in partnership with the Government, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the Normandy Memorial Trust and the Spirit of Normandy Trust.

Andrew adds, "Yesterday was of course the 74th anniversary of the D-Day Landings - where incredibly brave allied soldiers took part in the largest seaborne invasion in history to begin the liberation of Europe.

"It is incredibly important to ensure that as many veterans as possible are aware of how they can register and take part in the commemorations for the 75th anniversary in 2019."
