Bells, 6 June

Bells will be rung at 18:44 (6.44 pm) on June 6, the Clochers de la Liberté (freedom bells) commemoration in many countries.
This to mark the 76th anniversary of D-Day in an initiative started by history enthusiasts from France.

This is to ensure that the anniversary is marked, despite the fact that there are no official events in Normandy this year due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

The church bells are being rung on a time picked for its link to the original date of D-Day – in more than 2,000 places.
In many areas World War Two veterans will start the ringing.
