Today we remember the soliders we lost in Normandy...

Those who flew and unleashed an airel bombardment...

Those who manned boats to which enabled the amphibious attack...

Those who ran out and met the enemy in battle face to face...

To commemorate the soldiers who fought in this historic battle the charity Help for Heroes is holding a Big Battlefield Bike Ride where participants cycle over 300 miles across countryside of Normandy and Northern France to our finish in Paris from their landing in Normandy early on D Day, 6th June. Find out more about this wonderful charity on their site.
