The BBC Crackles:

“Les Français parlaient aux Français”

“Saint Liguori founded Naples”….

“Saint Liguori founded Naples”….

“Yvette likes big carrots”….

“Yvette likes big carrots”….

“The tall blond man is called Bill”…

“The tall blond man is called Bill”….

“The time of fighting will come…”

“The time of fighting will come…”

“The long sobs of autumn violins…”

“…wounding my heart with a monotonous languour”

“The long sobs of autumn violins…”

“…wounding my heart with a monotonous languour”

So began the greatest invasion in the history of modern warfare. The Invasion of Occupied Europe. 70 years ago today, in wave after wave a million men poured onto the beaches of Normandy. The sea filled with ships. The sky filled with planes. Ears filled with the sounds of battle. The water filled with blood.

Thousands of mothers wept that night. We give thanks to the millions who gave their lives during that epic battle against the forces of evil know as Fascism.

Within a year, Hitler is dead, and his henchmen in shackles.
