Thread: Lest we forget

    Lest we forget

    Just watched the news and the recognition of those that parachuted into occupied Europe the day before D Day to secure the bridges. An 89 year old veteran today parachuted onto the same field that he landed in 70 years ago to hold the bridge with his mates.

    Tomorrow will be the 70th year, I would hope that we all take time out of our day for a few minutes to reflect the heroism of all those on D Day and those gave their lives so we may all be free.

    Brave men everyone of them.

    Last night I got out two of my Enfields, one a No. 1 MkIII which went ashore June 6, and the other a 1944 No.1 Mk 1V* trainer in .22 LR, and fixed the bayonets, and stood them up in the corner of the den, just to get in the spirit of things.

    I heard the 89-year-old American who parachuted into France, and saw another from the British Royal Marines, is doing it.

    Good photos

    It makes you feel proud and humble. What great men were they,we must never never forget. I doff my cap to the brave that survive and brave that lost there lives.

    That 89 year old is some boy- after WW2 he rose to SSM in Rhodesian SAS and was still serving in South African SF up to the 1980s

    Not enough is done to honour the brave men that risked their lives for our country, its a shame that our government hasn't got the backbone to do anything about it nowadays. Wouldn't have happened on Churchill's watch!
