D-Day - 75 Stories: Chaplains Gerard Nesbitt & Cecil James Hawksworth

Today seems like a fitting day to reflect on the crucial role played by military Chaplains during the Battle of Normandy.

Chaplains Gerard Nesbitt & Cecil James Hawksworth were dedicated to their comrades, both before and during the Battle of Normandy.

They both had a vocation which is carried on by today’s Chaplains in the British Armed Forces, as The Revd Fr Paschal Hanrahan explains.

The ‘22,442 Sacrifice for Freedom Campaign’ is raising funds to complete the British Normandy Memorial. You can donate to the campaign by visiting this link.

Your support and generosity is very much appreciated.
