Remembering D-Day and the Battle of Normandy
Thursday 6th June at Brigg Court

Mary and Mary made a great 80th D-Day commemoration Flag and the Ladies also organised the tea's cake and games!


Allied nations, and the intensive planning of engineers, meteorologists, logisticians and countless more,
led to a force from 13 countries approaching Normandy in a 5000-vessel armada.

In the early hours of D-Day, 24,000 paratroopers and glider-borne troops landed behind German lines to provide tactical support.
Massive naval and aerial bombardments attempted to supress the German defences and weaponry.
Then a ground force of more than 130,000 troops came ashore on five beaches across a 50-mile stretch of Normandy coast,
with the first waves often facing intact defences.
By the end of D-Day there had been 10,000 allied casualties.
Yet this was only the beginning. The ensuing Battle of Normandy was to last into August and cost tens of thousands of lives
as it defeated and repulsed the occupying German forces eastwards. It was a decisive success for the Allies and paved the
way for the liberation of much of north west Europe.
