D-Day Remembrance at Salisbury District Hospital

June 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Salisbury District Hospital was built by the Americans in 1942 during World War Two in order to support Salisbury General Infirmary to treat allied service men injured during the D-Day landings and so it was only fitting that an American Colonel was asked as a special guest to the service. He gave a beautiful speech and the Stars and Stripes adorned the Flagpole whilst men and Women from the Royal British Legion marched their Standards.

Speeches made, prayers said the Last Post was then sounded out by a lone bugler as the American flag was deftly lowered to half mast to signal the 2 minutes silence, before reveille was sounded and the flag returned to full mast.
