Dispatch from Normandy

Museum Curator, Larry Decuers, reported this morning from Normandy, where he is escorting the Museum’s Allied Invasion in Normandy Tour.

06:36, H-hour, D-Day+ 69 years. We travel to the Vierville draw, where A company, 116th regiment, 29th division came ashore at this precise moment 69 years ago today. Everyone reflects on the sacrifice of these young men in a moment of silence which is gently broken by ‘Amazing Grace’ played on the bagpipes. Simply breathtaking.
