Seventy-three years ago this morning Uncle Bertie and 906 other servicemen paid the supreme sacrifice in Normandy to defend our freedoms. The Lord Jesus Christ said, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." It is our sincere desire that Uncle Bertie and thousands others did not die in vain. May we never forget the price that was paid for our freedom by thousands in Normandy but especially by the Lord Jesus Christ.
RIP Edward from your Scottish family
I am the grandson of Les Bowron, 8th DLI who visited Jerusalem with his great grandsons to pay our respects to these brave men. I visited the cemetery with Les some 35 years ago. He wrote in the memorial book, 'They were canny lads'.

From the 11th Hussars War Diary: "2Tp and 5Tp spent the night together, and 3Tp with the Infantry. The rest of the Sqn slept in a sunken lane which was almost shell and bomb proof. Poor Tpr Humphrey in the Scout Tp was killed by a mortar that day, one could not want a better man." Rest in Peace Trooper Humphrey.
Rest in Peace Douglas Goom
Great Uncle John, I am so happy to have found where you are laid to rest. I heard the story from my father how his mothers baby brother fell in the second world war.
