Operation Overlord - D-Day - 6 June 1944

We Will Remember Them!! Lest We Forget! Today is the 79th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the D-Day invasion of France. Canadian, British and Imperial Forces along with Americans and the Free Forces of the Nazi-occupied countries, hit the beaches in Normandy. Here is a minute by minute, interactive timeline of the invasion: D-Day Live: The Historic Invasion in Real Time

Here are some videos about D-Day.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning 
We will remember them.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
