Additional Information

 

 

Trooper BERNARD MORAN left two young sons, Frank and John, when he was killed in Normandy. During his last visit home, before returning from leave, the family recalls that he picked up his young nephew and said 'I might not see you again Gerald, but God bless you.' In the 1980's his nephew visited Bayeux Memorial to pay his respect to his uncle who never returned from the battlefields of Normandy.1
