D-Day - 75 Stories: Frank and Glen Burston

It was unusual for brothers to serve on the same Royal Air Force aircraft during the Battle of Normandy, but Canadians Glen and Frank Burston did, with tragic consequences.

As Colonel Darcy Molstad from the Royal Canadian Air Force explains.

More than thirty nationalities will be represented on the British Normandy Memorial, honouring those who gave their lives whilst serving under British command.

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.
