D-Day 80 Flag of Peace raised in Winchester

The D-Day 80 Flag of Peace has been raised at Guildhall Winchester to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

On 6 June 1944, the Battle of Normandy, codenamed Operation Overlord, bought together the largest naval, air and land operation in history as the Allies sought to free Western Europe from Nazi occupation. On this day, we remember over 209,00 Allied casualties.

Later today, the Mayor of Winchester Cllr Russell Gordon-Smith will attend Test Valley Borough Council's Civic and D-Day Anniversary Service at St Mary's Church in Andover.
