The Royal Naval Association for Rosyth and West Fife are holding a ceremony of light this summer to mark the anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Taking place in the village square in Hillend, the event will mark 80 years since the largest invasion by sea and air of Allied Troops in Normandy. It took place on June 6, 1944.

A total of 4,414 Allied Troops were killed on D-Day itself, and some 9,000 were wounded or missing. Total German casualties on the day are estimated to be between 4,000 and 9,000.

On the same day this year, branch members and guests, participating organisations, the branch piper, a bugler and spectators will assemble at designated points in the village square at 7.45pm.

When the parade is in position, Brooklyn Morris will pipe the Battles O’er Lament, which was written for the 2018 Beacons of Light Ceremony. There will be a small presentation on the history behind the ceremony.

School pupils will read a selection of poems from the 2018 Battle O’er ceremony. At the end of the night, the Lord Lieutenant of Fife will be lighting the beacon.

Goody bags will be handed out to participating children.
