Exclusive Cockade made by hand in Honour of Normandy 75

Tuesday, 26 March 2019 15:18:00 Europe/London

At AWARD we are lucky to have a dedicated team of framers, sewers and engravers who dedicate time and passion in producing hand-made items for our customers. A beautifully crafted Cockade, made to order by hand and traditionally worn by ladies and gents on lapel or hat, has been created in-house, using a metre of Normandy Campaign Commemorative Ribbon. At its centre is the exclusive Normandy 75 die-struck enamel badge depicting the red, blue and RAF blue of the Allied services and the 5 white stars which represent the five landing beaches and the white stars also identified Allied vehicles with the striking Normandy 1944 crest. The Normandy 75 Cockade can be worn in commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings. £2.50 from the sale of each Normandy Cockade will be donated to the Spirit of Normandy Trust.

Conscripts Vital Contribution to D-Day

Sunday, 24 March 2019 15:51:37 Europe/London

On 3rd September 1939, with the outbreak of war, the Military Service Act was replaced with the National Service Act which saw many conscripts play a key part in the Normandy D-Day Landings, with many souls paying the ultimate price for their dedication and service to King and country. As we remember all precious lives lost and the impact on those who were involved in the D-Day Landings, we will turn our thoughts to those who performed National Service on 6th June on the 75th anniversary of the Normandy D-Day Landings and on 30th June at the National Service Conscripts Memorial Service at the National Memorial Arboretum.
