June 6th 1944
How well I remember Deliverance Day in 1944
This was the beginning of the end of our six year war.
Many nations took part in this exceptional historic day
To help bring back justice and take tyranny away.
I watched with bated breath as our planes filled the sky
Many would be wounded and many would also die.
What a lot we owe to all who took part in that historical day
They gave us back our freedom and banished evil away.
We should never forget those who fought for us to survive
Just Thank God they gave you freedom and you are still alive.

I had the privilege of seeing the awesome sight of all the hundreds of planes heading for their destination. The emotional roller coaster that was felt by everyone watching was something that no one could ever put into words. I was and am extremely proud of all of them who took part, no matter whether it was by land, sea or air.
I can still see my mother standing looking at the sky with her rosary in her hand praying for them to come back safely although we knew many would never make it.
