D-Day 6th June 2007

63 years on from the original invasion two intrepid bootnecks from Exmouth Wargames Club set sail along with other Royal Marines from the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines. It was fun, wet, tiring and inspiring. Here are a few phots. CSgt Phil Adams endeavours to remain cool in a sea state 4 on a flat bottomed Landing Craft ...

... Major Dave Fielder meanwhile coolly cross-decks from an LCU to an LCVP (a big one to a small one!). Then we bob around for a bit more and look at the Mulberry Harbours.

We wade ashore to be greated by veterans, French and Rum - huzzah!
