Honour a loved one on Hill 112
The Memorial Foundation is proud to be able to offer relatives, comrades and friends of those who fought in the service of their country in the fierce battles for Hill 112 and the Odon Valley in the summer of 1944 a unique opportunity to honour the fallen.
The Foundation has sourced high quality memorial plaques that can be purchased to mark the bravery and sacrifice of the many men who fought bravely for this strategic viewpoint outside Caen as the Allies marched through Normandy after the D-Day landings. The Foundation is keen to see relatives and friends honour all those who fought, not just those who lost their lives in the ultimate sacrifice.
The plaques are individually inscribed to order and, once completed, will be placed by the Foundation amongst the 112 trees in the Avenue of Remembrance at what is now a haven of peace cared for by the Odon Cote 112 Association, The Hill 112 Memorial Foundation’s partners in France. Please note that individuals and groups are not permitted to place their own plaques.

Each plaque is 150mm x 200mm and made of black anodised aluminium on an oak backing board (220mm x 170mm). Supplied with an angled tree stake.
