Even after the D-Day celebrations in June, veterans continue to come to Normandy this summer! Ashley, Juno Beach Centre guide, was thrilled to welcome Jack Bird, a British veteran of the Royal Navy. Mr Bird landed 9 sherman tanks and their crew on D-Day.
He paid tribute to his fallen comrades on the beach during the Juno Park and bunker tour.
Thank you for visiting and “we will remember them.”
