    Default 66 Years Ago D Day June 6

    With pounding hearts and heaving waves
    A steel hull takes us to our graves
    The ramp goes down the first mans out
    As he goes down without a shout
    His helmet lies on bloody sand
    The finial steps for a D Day man

    On forward dunes a soldat waits
    For the great almighty to chose his fate
    With white hot steel tearing open flesh
    His eyes will close with his last breath
    And he becomes another one
    A fallen father, husband , son

    Remeber them all , Cheers Raymond

    My Grandfather fought in the Canadian Navy in the second world war. He drove a landing craft on the first wave of the assault on Juno beach.

    This poem pretty much summarizes the stories he has told me. He survived the sinking of his landing craft after it got washed into a hedgehog mine. He saw to of his fellow soldiers die right before his eyes when this happened....

    Hi Raymond,
    Very Poignant poem for this time of the year, and all of it,s meanings. we hear stories from veterans over the years of what they saw or went through, but we will never know the true feeling the had on the day. Your diarama still sums it up as we have all seen this scene before. thanks for putting this on.
    Dave.
