    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Tar very much mate! I'll have a good look through that site.

    I just hope we get time to wander freely, as we've book through Ledger Holidays, so I imagine much of it will be guided tours.

    I don't know what I'll be looking at most.... Normandy, or Joes reaction to being back there again! I'm honestly humbled to be going with him!

    Talking of Ver Sur Mer: I know a Vet who's house is named after the village. He had a specially made plaque cast with the name and a stylised Landing craft on it. He was a Royal Marine on Landing Craft on D-Day. He did about 6 runs onto the beach there.

    Cheers, Ade.
