Republicans Overseas UK commemorated the special Anglo-American relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom at the momentous 75th Anniversary of the DDay Landings & Battle of Normandy event, as well as, during the historic state visit of US President Donald J. Trump. It was a sold-out event with 120 people in attendance.
From either side of the Atlantic, we were joined by three very special guest speakers, who personally understand the importance of the special relationship and the important role the Western Allies still play today.
