In Remembrance – 6th June 1944

With today being the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy I thought I’d share a few pictures of some the war memorials local to my area, in remembrance of those that never came back and those who left something behind on the beaches of Normandy or the fields of Flanders.  The featured image is of the Commando memorial in the Scottish Highlands.

To finish I’ll leave you with a photo of my trip to Ypres earlier this year.  Different war, same tragedy.
