    Thanks buddy

    Only the one am afraid as capa only took a few photos on d day and difficult to pinpoint exact locations this one is the only one I could find that I could locate today.

    thanks for comment

    I went with my son a few years ago when he was 12 and we ran from the waters edge to the dunes and said to him imagine doing that 60 years ago with kit on and being shot at......I think the point was made.

    Regards
