D-day 2006

 

Possibly the best D-day in recent years.
Firstly the weather was wonderful, not always the case, and because it was not a major anniversary the Great and the Good (our politicians) were absent leaving the event to the Veterans and their friends. The main American ceremonies were held on Memorial Day, last week. But that did not stop a good number of American Veterans being in Normandy over the D-day weekend.
Throughout the day a French Frigate sailed up and down the beaches, occasionally firing just to remind us of the Navy's involvement on D-day.
A fantastic and moving day, I wish you could have all been there to experience it with me. Follow the links to see Photo's
