With yesterday having been the D-Day anniversary, there have been stories and remembrances posted all over the internet.
This one article got to me:
I mentioned in yesterday's blog that I'd walked those Normandy beaches, back about 1975... as a serving soldier, the question at the back of my mind was always,
"Would I have had the balls to step off one of those landing craft on that day?"
I'm sure the same question rests in the mind of any soldier or marine visiting Normandy today.
