Cobourg Media remembers the 75th anniversary of D-Day, when thousands of Allied troops, among them some 14,000 Canadian young soldiers, stormed the beaches in the Allied invasion of Normandy during the Second World War.
Our special presentation highlights the 75th Anniversary Commemorations in Normandy France including exclusive interviews with the Juno75 Organizing Committee.
We tell the story of World War II Veteran Stan Egerton and his fallen brothers George and Frank. On the eve of D-Day, the Toronto Scottish Regiment returns to the Bény-Sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery to remember one of their own.
Plus, Cobourg Media has an invitation to the Juno Beach Centre Association Gala in Caen France. We hear from the Minister of National Defence Harjit Sajjan, D-Day Veterans and their families.
The special concludes with a unique performance by the Cobourg Legion Pipes and Drums.
Together we will remember their bravery and sacrifice. Thank you for your viewership and support during our special coverage.
