The 15 best Burnley and Padiham chippies, according to Google Reviews

National Fish and Chip Day takes on extra significance this year.

Usually held on the first Friday in June, it is being celebrated today in order to coincide with the 80th anniversary of D-Day – the largest seaborne invasion in history and the beginning of the liberation of Western Europe.

What is the connection between fish and chips and D-Day?

Prime Minister Winston Churchill called fish and chips ‘the good companions’. Fish and chips were one of the few foods that was not rationed during WW2. The meal was safeguarded to try and keep morale up.

During the Normandy landings, soldiers who needed a way of telling whether someone nearby was a friend or foe would reportedly use the words fish and chips as a code – one would call ‘fish’ and the other would reply ‘chips’.
