; For the love of Megstiel
Just going to have a serious for a moment.
I’ve seen a fair few posts about Draco Malfoy’s birthday and what-not, but absolutely nothing mentioning that today is the 70th year since the D-Day attack in World War 2. So here is a little reminder and a salute to all those brave men that landed on the sand, all the ones who lived, died, and saw the horrors of war. All the women back at home who waited desperately, not sure whether they were going to get back their husband or a knock at their front door. All those children who waited to see if they would get back a father or have their mother dissolve into tears and not quite understand what had happened.
Today, 89 year old Jock Hutton, one of the first to land on that beach 70 years ago repeated the jump aged 92 to be greeted by the veterans and paratroopers of today on the same beach he lost the vast majority of his friends and co-fighters.
I just thought this should be mentioned somewhere.
