Hi sapper. My father took part in the D-Day landings but his sons and dauthers only found out much much later as he felt unable to talk about. We knew later as teenages that he was later sent to Cyprus which must have been after the war had ended. He landed on Gold beach part of the 1st Battalion Dorset Regiment. And that is about all I know..apart from the fact that he lost many friends in the coming days. So reading this post of your experiencies I can only thank you for reminding us all of what happened on that day and the days that followed. Thanks again.
