Before the day is over somewhere in the world, thought it best we remember a very special event that took place 75 years ago.

It also happens to be their wedding anniversary so, as they say, it's always the thought that counts. :haha:

The decoration looks great Will and an rc parade will make a nice tribute especially as a lot of other planned events have had to be cancelled at this time, look forward to the footage you take :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.

A short video from us with a heavily modified JJRC Willys Jeep modified cosmetically based on what we saw on our travels last year around Normandy on 75th anniversary of D day
I love the piece of music aswell and wanted to have it playing in background

I was asked by our local village council to put on a parade for the local page. But we scaled it back alot due to the social distancing measures
