The Fallen Heroes of Normandy is a not-for-profit organisation providing a free-to-access online historical archive and memorial to those, of all nationalities, who lost their lives in Normandy, France, during The Second World War.
Each person, who now rests in Normandy and died in the Second World War, will have their own memorial page, where researchers, friends and family may add information, documents, memories and photographs about the individual.
The Normandy Veteran Obituaries: Last Post page, on this blog, also commemorates Veterans who served on, over or along the shores of the Normandy battlefields during the Second World War.
The aim of the archive is to collate, and provide online, photographs, documents and information relating to those who fell in Normandy. Thereby helping to provide a permanent visual memorial to the fallen for future generations.
From 2014 the Fallen Heroes of Normandy aims to become established as an official charity with the intention of publishing free information packs for teachers, schools and colleges and promoting the battlefields of Normandy as a place to visit learn about the sacrifices that were made there.
