We drove down to Sword Beach to see where the British fought during the Normandy landings. Considering the magnitude of where we were, there wasn’t a lot there to commemorate those that fought and died there. We had a look at the small monument, and went for a walk along the sand thinking about what had taken place here! That night we got talking to a guy at our campsite who happened to be a massive history fan and knew all about it. Two hours later we were still stood outside our car trying to get away… but it was interesting to learn a bit more about it.
