D-DAY - 75 STORIES: The Guy Brothers

Thursday 6 June 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Here at The Normandy Memorial Trust we are counting down to this historic date by sharing a selection of remarkable stories of heroism and sacrifice, every day between now and then.

The Normandy Memorial Trust is building the British Normandy Memorial.

It will commemorate the 22,442 people who were killed whilst serving under British command during the Battle of Normandy, between 6 June and 31 August 1944.

The ‘22,442 Sacrifice for Freedom Campaign’ is raising funds to complete the Memorial project.

Today’s story is about the Guy brothers.

The Guy twins have been buried and commemorated separately since they died.

Robert is buried at La Celle-Les-Bordes Communal Cemetery, south-west of Paris.

Charles’ body was never recovered. He is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial in Surrey.

Divided in death, they will be reunited in remembrance on the British Normandy Memorial.
