D-Day visit to the Normandy beaches

Two Haig Housing residents, John and Mark, together with fellow veteran and friend Ian, travelled to Normandy in June to pay their respects on the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

They visited the Normandy Memorial and laid three wreaths; John on behalf of the Royal Navy, Mark, the RAF and Ian, the Army.

They also met Nicholas Witchell who was instrumental in the creation of the Normandy Memorial a couple of years ago.

Their visit also included the Caen Museum, Pegasus Bridge and several cemeteries.
