A mate of mine has just returned from providing medical cover for the old boys in Normandy. He's posted up a few photos and some info' on what went on. I thought it might be of interest to some on here. It's quite humbling as well. http://www.airgunbbs.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3608961#post3608961 Thursday and Friday were excellent weather-wise, Saturday however, it pished down in the afternoon. The "Organisers" had the veterans mustered up in three ranks, standing in the rain for well over an hour Reason: Waiting for that Bashtid Gordon Brown and the other Tvvart Zarkosy! In the end, the Veterans decided they'd had enough and decided to march down the main street in Arromanches and into the square on the sea-front. One old boy was challenged by a current British Army Captain who apparently said to the Veterans, "Gents, I can't let you go any further than here". To which a smart, heavily decorated Veteran said... "Listen here Captain, I came here 65 years ago to fight a war, if you try to stop us today, you'll have another war..."... The group was given immense applause and roaring cheers, it was possibly the best moment of the trip. A few Gendarmes tried to stop the group but failed also, then a spectator shouted... "Hey, you lot would all be speaking German now if it wasn't for these men!" and another roar of support followed.
