Good afternoon one and all,whilst on the pish last and being forced to imbibe many a san miguel i reminded the fellows of the date and we raised a glass to those brave men and woman involved, the question was put to me "what does the D in D-DAY mean... now i always believed it was deliverance-day and a couple of other suggestion were made... now i need to settle a bet and look to you fellow ARRSERS to educate me .... i did google it but still hungover and far far to much to read available.

From the D-Day museum......The “D” does not stand for "Deliverance", "Doom", "Debarkation" or similar words. In fact, it does not stand for anything. The “D” is derived from the word "Day". “D-Day” means the day on which a military operation begins. The term "D-Day" has been used for many different operations, but it is now generally only used to refer to the Allied landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944.
