51st Highland Division at St Valéry-en-Caux Remembered

This morning as the BBC introduced the National Ceremony of Remembrance at 
the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London, they said it was an appropriate moment 
to remember the sacrifice of an entire infantry division, 51st Highland, 
Scotland's Finest, at  St Valéry-en-Caux.  Newsreel accompanied the 
narration of their heroism, abandoned in France as the British 
Expeditionary Force withdrew at Dunkirk, among them Caithness' own Seaforth 

I think this was the first time their courage and sacrifice has received 
national recognition.

Yours aye
