    And not one mention of the Royal Navy Who's HMS Belfast signalled the start of D-day by firing the first shots.
    Also the men of the Navy who was not far away who done all the mine sweeping to clear the way for the ships to get in close, they also done some night landings 2 nights before, then only to find out that they had to do the same again the following night.
    Well said southy, you are quite correct. I remember that day so well. I was 5 and a half. The troops massing all around us (Wimbourne) the tanks and field guns suddenly were no longer there. Then the guns which could clearly be heard across the channel and the sky full of aircraft. We were all so excited!"
