Normandy competition

The daughter of a Second World War veteran has launched a competition for schools to highlight the heroism of troops in the D-Day invasion.

Rachelle Goldberg launched the project to commemorate her late father, Sidney Goldberg, who fought in the Normandy landings of 1944.

Students will submit essays or artwork on the landings. The winners will be announced on June 6 2014 — the 70th anniversary of the landings.
