D-Day anniversary

This week marked the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy.

25 years ago, I was lucky enough to visit Arromanches beach in Normandy, albeit not really old enough to fully appreciate the true significance of the events there of June 6, 1944.

Alas, no trip to Normandy this weekend, but did manage to get out the Australian War Memorial in Canberra - 4th visit and it gets better each time, surely one of the best of its kind.
