...they just fade away Yesterday, the Normandy veterans marched down Whitehall to the Cenotaph to remember their fallen comrades. Sadly, it is the last time they will do this as the Normandy Veterans Association will organise no more memorial marches in London due to rapidly dwindling numbers and the advanced age of those still living. It is testament to the courage and honour of these old soldiers who made the effort, even though painful for many, to come from all over Britain for a last formal farewell to their comrades who never returned. Bless em all. Heroes, every one of them. They shall not be forgotten.
