Nice Job Tally! Brings back memories of watching The Longest Day as a kid.

Hope you don't mind one small observation though? Lovat's Piper, Bill Millin, went ashore wearing his Kilt, Sporran, Hose etc and a Beret not a helmet as can be seen in the picture below of the Memorial Statue due to be unveiled this Saturday. Apparently the Germans actually avoided shooting him because they thought he was a madman marching up the beach playing his pipes! affraid

We missed a trick there then. All of our troops should have been wearing kilts and have bullet firing Bagpipes. No-one would've got shot then. Laughing

Tally you interested in making another trip over to Suffolk next year. Might have a bridge for your troops to relieve Wink

Good remembrance photo for this day. I wouldn't mind a similar photo for every major war-time remembrance. Sometimes it seems that only us "big kids" and history buffs are the only ones that know and remember the important times of our history.

There is some definite truth to that my friend. My son is 3 years old and its important he knows history as well.... At some point history will fade if not remembered through us.

Cheers

And a Salute to the Men who lost their lives
