|This moving poem was left at the Commonwealth Cemetery in Bayeux.|
|Robert Capa's photos give an inkling into the blind terror of these assaults.|
|'The Fallen' is a project to mark the loss of 9000 lives during the landings.|
|He'll never forget and neither should we.|
Those photographs can only give a tiny insight into the sheer scale of sacrifice that was made by so many. For once Hollywood seems to have been realistic in its depiction of the landings if the reactions to the harrowing opening scenes in 'Saving Private Ryan' are anything to go by. I won't post a link here: you know where you can find clips easily.
As much as we should never forget these landings or the people involved, the British Legion is also about looking forward and trying to help those who served in our Armed Services. Its aims are rehabilitation, transition and trying to give focus to lives that have been irreversibly changed in the line of serving Queen and Country.
|For these people it's year-round, not just in November...|
