Pegasus Bridge

   The last post on D-Day battlefields is probably a tad late and should have come first - Pegasus bridge. This was one hell of a morning out it has to be said. Driving round the corner and seeing the replacement bridge is something I'll remember for the rest of my life and the stuff in the museum plus the real bridge are amazing.

The bridge itself in full glory - standing on it was really strange

A photo of the new bridge from the point the middle glider landed - just shows how close they were

The first civilian house liberated on D-Day and a great stop for lunch. The owner spoiled my little boy rotten and just couldn't have been nicer

Thanks for reading
