We crossed the English Channel on the night of 5th June 2014, landing near Sword Beach early in the morning of 6th June 2014, the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
On 7th June 2014, we took part in a tour organised by the Mémorial de Caen Museum. The guided tour took in sights around the coast including the cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer and a German battery at Pointe-du-Hoc.
Bayeux was our destination on 8th June 2014. These streets were full of military vehicles and jubilant locals and tourists as the Calvados town celebrated 70 years since its liberation by Allied forces.
D-Day + 3
On 9th June 2014, we visited the Mémorial de Caen Museum. This centre for peace and reconciliation is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in learning more about D-Day or the subsequent Normandy campaign.
