Dixie Heron and Son

Lest we Forget

Today is the 70 th anniversary of the allied invasion of Sicily

An association member, (seen here with his son), Maurice (Dixie) Heron was among the Commandos and British Troops who landed in Sicily during the  invasion of Sicily on 10th July 1943.

We are looking forward to meeting Dixie again at the reunion on 17th August at North Weald.
