75 years ago, on the 6 June, 1944, the largest seaborne invasion force in history set sail for France on a mission to liberate Europe.  Each man carried a pack, a rifle, and the world’s hopes for freedom.

If they didn’t succeed at this crucial point during World War II, Hitler would have the chance to mount a last-minute effort to save Germany – launching his new V-weapons against British cities.  This day would go down in history as D-Day.

The Royal British Legion Scotland is marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day with a reception for the D-Day veterans at the French Consulate.
