Do you know a D Day veteran?
If so, we need your help! The travel arm of the Royal British Legion, Remembrance Travel, is on a mission to find every single surviving D Day veteran, as the Treasury is enabling a series of free-of-charge tours for D Day veterans to return to Normandy and pay their respects to their fallen comrades.
The tours are being funded by the Treasury from Libor fines, and will enable a D Day veteran to return with a family member and carer on a six-night tour.
The 2017 tours will take place in March, April, May and September and will give Normandy veterans - now mostly in their 90s - the chance to revisit the Normandy beaches, cemeteries and memorials. The tours will be accompanied by a medic and a guide from the Royal British Legion.
For Normandy veterans wishing to benefit from this tour, they need to apply via Remembrance Travel’s tour operator, Arena Travel on 01473 660800, or visit www.arenatravel.com/journeysofremembrance.
