    I would'nt say that, in the main all the French people ive met plus the French members on here are all decent enough and have a respect for the fallen in their country, many help to preserve the history of the invasion and also attempt to stop desecration of sites and war graves, my beef is with certain members of the political authorities who have the power yet fail to weild it, i realise that its hard to patrol all the sites and to keep out the yobs without restricting access for everyone, but there should be a heavy penalty for any desecration of a historic site, the same goes for any country, you can never fully stop the damages or graffiti, but it still doesnt alter the fact that as what i'd like to do with them

    also bear in mind France is a large country with the people from Normandy and Brittany having their own identities and characteristics,Ive always enjoyed their company and found them very welcoming to visitors and respectful of veterans and alive and dead,thyey also generally speak much better English than we do French

    I visited last year and started some threads of where I had been (see below). This bunker was close to a beach that we went to. Not the greatest of pictures and it appeared that it was being used for something.
