I had a trip to Normandy with a mate on our Norges in 2009. It happened to be a few days before 6th June, which we hadn't twigged. We visited Arromanche and the museum there (fantastic) then Omaha beach cemetery, which is probably the most moving place I have visited in my life. It was immaculate in preparation for (I think) Obama as it was going to be the last "celebration" with veterans there...

It's just reminded me I must go back again.PS, I see no pics....

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.0:)

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...
