D-Day 70: All Hands On Deck

HMS Belfast, London. Friday 29th May 2014

We Will Remember Them.

The 2014 Beattie Foundation’s annual Gala was dedicated to raising funds for our D-Day Veterans, in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Normandy Landings.

The exclusive, emotional evening was held aboard the historic HMS Belfast, which took part in the Normandy Landings, 70 years ago. It was a true privilege to be amongst a group of the Hero Veterans, as they remembered, and were remembered.

Guests had the opportunity to step back in time whilst exploring the warship which tells the story of life on board during the Second World War, and learn of Veterans’ experiences, and the memories they held.

Thank you to all who joined us for our most special event yet, and thank you to those Veterans who attended – ensuring an unforgettable evening for all.



A huge thank you to our friends and partners
