Lest We Forget | 77 Years On, We Remember Them All


Recommended Posts

My late father-in-Law was one of the young men who landed on Sword Beach where he was shot and wounded. After the beachhead was taken he was transported to a Field Hospital where he was treated and then driven inland to rejoin his unit. During a village house to house encounter he got stabbed resulting in him getting transported back to Blighty and into a Hospital in South Wales.

After that lot, he was discharged from military service and ended up being rewarded by doing thirty years down a Durham Pit working on the coal face doing a job that he hated every single day of his working life.

Their generation? We won’t see their like again. The only people’s of Europe who’ve got any fight, pride and a sense of personal and national responsibility left within them are those of Poland and others from East and Central Europe.

As for us today, we’re more concerned with Identity Politics, Noble Causes and any other crazed ideology that brainwashes our young people into believing that the West is a tyrannical patriarchy that’s responsble for oppressing any group who consider themselves to be victims.

Thank you to your father-in-law for his service to our country and Europe.
