I apologize for this "off topic".
I remain convinced that many here will appreciate this duty of memory.
the retired French officer that I am can only and still thank those who came to liberate us at the cost of their lives.
let them be thanked for eternity.

One of the amazing stories on the UK side was the practice area at Slapton Sands a shingle beach in South Devon. I can't recall the exact numbers but I'm sure it was hundreds were killed in practice...
