As Labour refuses to pay for veterans' return to Normandy beaches, an invitation to go into battle for our D-Day heroes
A huge wave of support is gathering for D-Day veterans desperate to attend the 65th anniversary of the Normandy landings.
As revealed by the Daily Mail, the Government has shamefully decided to ignore the event, with no plans for ministers or the Royal Family to attend.
The Ministry of Defence has rejected requests for financial aid to survivors and says there will be no further official commemoration of D-Day until its centenary - when all those involved will be dead.
To compound the farce, the American and Canadian governments are sending top-level delegations to mark the momentous date.
Even the Germans will join the commemorations and remember the fallen on both sides.
Today, the Mail launches a campaign to honour and support the 500 remaining veterans' cause.
