British Normandy Memorial unveiled on 77th anniversary

A memorial honouring soldiers who died under British command on D-Day - and in the fighting that followed - has been unveiled in France on the 77th anniversary of the Normandy landings. The British Normandy Memorial records the names of the 22,442 people who were killed on D-Day and at the Battle of Normandy. Due to the current travel restrictions caused by Covid-19, around 100 veterans were unable to travel to Normandy, and attended a ceremony in Staffordshire at the National Arboretum.
