Major anniversaries of D Day and operations in Normandy are planned for June 2014,
the 70th Anniversary of the D Day landings which took place on 6th June 1944.
On 6th June 1944 British, Canadian, French and American troops landed on five beaches,
with airborne forces dropping on their flanks. More than 10,000 Allied troops became
casualties but Hitler’s Atlantic Wall was breached.
