12. Over 65's AGGM - 2014 Hockey World Cup
6th June 2014 - Den Haag, Netherlands.
'D' Day' 6th June, seventy years since the Allied Expeditionary Force landed in Normandy, just 400 miles down the coast from where we are now in Den Haag. We reflect on the thousands of lives lost to ensure freedom from tyranny. Today we have a lay day, no game. We arrive at Klein Zwitserland Hockey Club to observe the play of other teams. It is ironic that, on this day in history, we have teams from England & Wales, Scotland, Australia & New Zealand, Netherlands, Belgium and Spain, playing hockey with teams from Germany, Italy and Japan, all bonding together by participation in the game that we love, and fostering improved international relations.
