75 Years On: Remembering D-Day

 

75 years to the day, we remember those young Englishmen that left their towns, villages and cities to brave the bombs and bullets on the blood drenched beaches on Normandy.

World leaders joined D-Day veterans in northern France for a second day of events to mark the 75th anniversary of the Normandy invasion.

Surviving veterans made the journey to Normandy for the anniversary of the largest combined land, air and naval operation in history, when the allied forces stormed the beaches of Juno, Gold, Utah, Omaha and Sword in France.

A memorial, which overlooks Gold Beach, depicts three soldiers advancing across the beach.

At 06:26 BST - the exact minute the first British troops landed on the beaches in 1944 - a lone piper played on a section of the Mulberry Harbour in the town of Arromanches.

Other events taking place include:

  • A veteran's parade in Arromanches, followed by a Red Arrows flypast
  • A service of remembrance and wreath laying at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire
  • In Portsmouth, a veteran's parade before a memorial service at the city's D-Day Stone
  • The Duke of Sussex will join the Chelsea Pensioners and six D-Day veterans for Founder's Day at London's Royal Hospital Chelsea

On this historical day, it is important that English patriots ask themselves: did our ancestors die for an England swamped by mass immigration? an England under the thumb of a European superstate? An England where patriotism is mocked, demonised and criminalised? An England where we, the indigenous peoples, are rendered a minority in our own country? This England, our England, is our only home. Join The English Democrats and help in the struggle to restore her to her past greatness!
