70 Years ago today 156,000 Men crossed the English channel and turned the tide of war against Hitler in West Europe – every one of us owes them something.

Take a moment out of your day to think about some aspect of D-Day.

      Omaha, Utah, Sword, Juno

      A few years ago I visited Normandy without the intention of seeing all of the sites but it just took me up.. I visited Pegasus bridge – the first action of D-Day, a glider assault by British soldiers – incredibly brave, incredibly dangerous and, in the end incredibly successful.
