View attachment 65868View attachment 65867Hi. Don`t know if this has been covered before. I think it was in the late 1980`s that a medal was struck for D Day participents, but to receive the medal, recipiants had to travel to France. Obviously this was out of the question for many people who could not travel, and the cause was taken up by the British Legion. They were successful and in the early 1990`s (I forget the actual date ) there were ceremonial presentations. My Father-in-law Stan was very proud to receive his medal, along with 32 comrades from D Day, from a French Dignitary and even now, as a 94 year old, with dementia, it remains his proudest possession. Let us NEVER forget the bravery that these men showed.
