Utah Beach

The Ceremony at Utah Beach should have been the big event, but got hijacked by the Omaha ceremonies. The celebration still went ahead with many veterans taking part. The evening was very cold with a north wind coming off the sea.

Later in the evening there was a fireworks display the started at the Merville batterie and finished at WN10 a couple of miles up the beach. The new American Navy uniform was on display for the very first time, with various comments.
