Seventy Years – remembering D-Day

Seventy Years
6th June 2014

These are the shores that
Spilled young men into
Battle-laden sea
To land in Omaha, Utah, Juno
Gold and Sword
Fighting for Freedom, Equality
Brotherhood

These are the men
Still standing proud
Our heroes of defence
Their final formal remembrance
As age now takes a grip
While distant voices of lost comrades
Sing “Abide with Me.”

M. Coulthard

A short tribute to the veterans of D-Day, and the memory of those who did not come back home.
