80th Anniversary of D-Day

To mark the 80th Anniversary of D-Day, a specially commissioned flag has been raised at the Hedge End Town Council offices to honour the courage and sacrifice of the troops. On 6th June 1944, tens of thousands of soldiers landed on five beaches in Normandy, northern France. It was largest seaborne invasion in history and played a critical role in liberating Western Europe from the Nazi occupation. #DDay80
