D-Day 75th Anniversary Pin
One of the most significant events of the 20thcentury is the Normandy Invasion, which took place 75 years ago, on June 6th,1944. The D-Day attack targeted an 80km stretch of the Normandy coast, which was divided into 5 sections: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Sword, and Juno. Canada made a major contribution to the D-Day effort by taking responsibility of the section known as Juno Beach. For its 75th anniversary, this pin helps to commemorate the sacrifice and effort all Canadians made on that fateful day. The beautifully enamelled Poppy is die-stamped separately, then attached to the heavily embossed and enamelled body of the pin. It is suitable for wear on all occasions from formal to everyday. Attractively presented on a decorative, descriptive card.
