75 years ago...
Today marks the 75th Anniversary of D Day and it is a moment to remember those who were involved in the landings and those who never made it home alive.
Locals who were children at the time shared their very fond memories with us, and told us how they had woken one morning to find them gone without even a goodbye. The soldiers who were living here were on the first assault of Omaha Beach where the casualties were so high.
It has been emotional the last few days watching the elderly veterans recreating the journey they made on D-Day.My Dad was involved in the invasion of Normandy but was lucky enough to have been on D Day +15 so didn't face the same obstacles as those who were first there on D Day.
These anniversaries make you stop, think and remember. Without them such great and brave men could easily be forgotten.
