PostSubject: D - DAY ANNIVERSARY   6/6/2011, 06:20

Well, it is 6 June in Australia, right now, anniversary of D - Day landings, 6.6.44.

in 2009, whilst on a Med/British Isles cruise on 'Crown Princess, we called in at Le Havre and I did a tour to Normandy Beaches, saw the battle sites, war graves etc. Memorable and moving.

So let us today remember those who served or fell on the D Day Beaches.

LEST WE FORGET

I was 9 years old when I heard the news on the radio. Means that I can pinpoint exactly where I was on the day, although at the time the significance of the events didn't register.

Totally agree unfortunately people are more interested in Britain's got talent or what the ladies are wearing at the Derby(or whatever) just don't care anymore (the media that is )classic example 3 guys have been killed in as many days in Afghanistan and I personally have not seen anything in the news papers now that's a bloody disgrace for sure Mad Mad lol!

Afghanistan is not good, 4 Aussie servicemen have died in past 3 weeks.

But no mention of the D Day Landings is disgusting. Same here in the media, bugger all.
All the usual politics.

Anyway us Dinosaurs remembered D Day, even if I was born 4 years after they happened. As a kid I was brought up on military history, living in married quarters and all.
Well done lads.
