Two public parades, each followed by a remembrance service, are planned for Thursday 6 June 2019 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

The Normandy landings, often referred to as 'D-Day', took place on 6 June 1944. Codenamed Operation Neptune, the landings formed the largest seaborne invasion in history and ultimately laid the foundations for an Allied victory on World War Two's Western Front.

The campaign involved the movement of more than 250,000 men across the Channel and into occupied France. There were more than 10,000 casualties on D-Day, with 4,414 lives lost.


The following public processions are planned for Thursday 6 June 2019:

Bonnybridge, 10:45am

Parade leaves Bonnybridge Community Centre at 10:45am and proceeds to the memorial park for a short remembrance service.

Falkirk, 7:00pm

Parade leaves Falkirk Town Hall car park and proceeds to Dollar Park Cenotaph for a short remembrance service.

All are welcome to attend.
