Bayeux - Reporters' Memorial

Bayeux was right in the thick of the D-Day landngs towards the end of the Second World War. You'll see red poppies and War Cemeteries, and if you like, war museums.

An interesting commemoration recently established at Bayeux is the Reporters' Memorial. The names of reporters and media personnel that have died in action are recorded on plinths that are placed besde a path that winds through the trees.

The increasing occurence of Arabic names indicates where the action has been of recent times. It's a stark reminder of the cost of securing our freedom of speech.
