Dedication

In memory of our late dear family and friends who served in the Second World War

 

'In war: Resolution,

In Defeat: Defiance,

In Victory: Magnanimity,

In Peace: Goodwill'.

                                     Winston S. Churchill

 

The Fallen Heroes of Normandy archive is dedicated and published in honour of all those who

fought, and fell, on land, sea or air across Normandy between 1939 and 1945.

R.I.P.

 

While the memory remains fresh of the fallen who now rest

in the many cemeteries and churchyards in Normandy, France,

and across many cemeteries in their homelands;

there is always hope that another generation of mothers, fathers, sons and daughters

need never again experience the indiscriminate killing, and waste, of total war.
