Normandy Trip

Once again several members of the group made the trip to Normandy in time for the 65th anniversary commemoration. The party laid wreathes to the 2nd Battalion East Yorks at the 3rd Division Memorial at La Breche d’Hermanville and at the Hermanville War Cemetery. We also spent a very moving hour listening to the stories of veteran Dennis Peachy on Sword beach where he landed. The rest of the time was spent visiting many of the huge number of sites and museums. It is difficult to remember that every inch of this ground was bitterly fought over, but the numerous Commonwealth war cemeteries bear witness to the huge cost of the success of the invasion.
