Day 3, June 6th 2015!
Today I went to Arromanches for the first time! Such a very interesting day meeting WW2 Veteran from one of the Royal Artillery units that landed on Gold Beach: Bill Glover. The Princes Irene Brigade who landed there on June 6th was also at the ceremonies! I actually started to get really interested in them and their actions on D-Day.
After that we went to the museum in Bayeux, which was actually quite a bummer; an overload of information and not many items. We drove back to Omaha Beach to have a coffee at the shore, which was filled with body’s of U.S. Troops. There we also met Joris from War History Online! I met him back in December during the No Victory In Valhalla Tour with Ian Gardner and Reg Jansen!
Time flies when you’re having fun, so just before having dinner we drove past a place called Angoville au plain. It served as Dropzone D for the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment!
So far so good, I’m excited for tomorrow as we will be meeting the Band of Brothers cast at the Utah Beach Museum. Have a great Saturday y’all. I’ll check in with you tomorrow!
