Today is the 70th Anniversary of the St Nazaire raid. Members from the CVA, the St Nazaire Society, and many other representative groups are in France to commemorate this combined Commando and Royal Navy operation in which so many lost their lives.

We will remember them

The local French newspaper published a short report and added a film, its poor quality but wait until the very end when there are close ups of 4 veterans

I have a lot of pictures, which I'll send to Geoff or Pete to make up an album on the Photo Gallery once I'm back on a 'proper' computer in the UK, but here's one with the charioteers to be getting on with. Bob Montgomery is slightly obscured unfortunately. It was a very moving occasion. Cheers, Mark (sent via mobile phone)

a good report on BBC News last night showed Billy Moore & Harold Nethersole.

Billy can be seen in Mark's (MBrockway) photo - stood to attention to the right of Major General Corran Purdon, with Harold (seated) just visible to Billy's right.

For those of you that have photos that are suitable for the gallery, if there are 12 or less send them to me in emails with no more than 4 attached to each email. Please include as much detail as possible especially the names of people or the units of any service personnel. For those with more than 12 photos please contact me by email so as we can arrange a suitable method of getting the photos to me for posting. Obviously we may get similar photos and so not all photos sent may be posted.

Stephane as I said before you are shown as having full access rights to the gallery. I specifically asked for that for you when user rights in the gallery were restricted. Can you send a message to Dan Mewett, our administrator, to see if he can resolve the issue of your logging in to the gallery. In the meantime if you want to send me any by email please do and I will post them on your behalf as I have done with your photo and that of Mark above. The album for this years trip can be found in the 'France' album of our CVA Events gallery:
