CCF Honour Guard to commemorate D-Day

PUBLISHED 08 June 2024

Our Cadets were proud to be part of the Fylde Council's commemoration of the 80th anniversary of D-Day at Fairhaven Lake on Thursday 6th June.

At precisely 9:15 PM, the beacon was lit, serving as a symbol of hope and resilience. This act of remembrance paid tribute to the soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy 80 years ago, forever changing the course of history.

The Mayor of Fylde, Councillor Karen Henshaw JP also attended the event said:“It was an honour to commemorate this significant anniversary with our community. The bravery and sacrifice of our veterans continue to inspire us, and it is our duty to remember and cherish their legacy. I am proud of how our community came together to mark this important occasion.”

WO2 Hobson-Woodhead, SSI AKS Lytham CCF added "It show's the professionalism and dedication of AKS Cadets in this is the third Honour Guard they have been asked to provide for ceremonies in the area, previous ones being the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Beacon Ceremony and a Falkland's Remembrance Ceremony in 2022. AKS CCF is a small but distinguished Contingent, having won the Alcar Cup at Summer Camp, and Second Place at a Regional First Aid Competition in 2023. Cadets learn practical skills that will help them in future careers, whatever they may be, including, teamwork, leadership, and personal discipline,"
