Message from Annie Riley [ The Swingtime Sweethearts ]

Our dear friend and Veteran, 91 year old Cyril Banks, is off to Normandy June 5th thanks to the generosity of The Excalibur Unit , and will be looked after while in Normandy by The Veterans Charity Danny Greeno.

I can't thank you guys enough, you have made an 'elderly hero' very happy. I spoke to Cyril earlier and am always so humbled at the way they 'play down' the sacrifices that they made.

Cyril also mentioned that he is to lay a poppy wreath at the memorial for the Royal Navy Minesweepers that lost their lives during WW2. They never forget ehh. We could learn a lot from that generation. Have a wonderful time Cyril, can't wait to hear about it all on Wednesday evening! Xxx P.S. This was all made possible because of my Facebook plea! So thank you everyone so much, I am truly blessed to call you all my friends! Xxx

Thank you Annie Riley and Le'arna Castle for making this possible for one of our Heroes to full fill his ambition in his own words to return to Normandy one last time .

All the best and enjoy Cyril from Excalibur Unit / Supporting our Heroes.
