British Normandy Memorial unveiled on 77th anniversary

A memorial honouring soldiers who died under British command on D-Day – and in the fighting that followed – has been unveiled in France on the 77th anniversary of the Normandy landings.

The British Normandy Memorial records the names of the 22,442 people who were killed on D-Day and at the Battle of Normandy.

Due to the current travel restrictions caused by Covid-19, around 100 veterans were unable to travel to Normandy, and attended a ceremony in Staffordshire at the National Arboretum.
