    D-Day is on. They've been knocking the bells of Shannon out of Calais since 21:30hrs to act as a decoy, British and US vessels are now making their way to France and the Airborne forces are just reaching the French coast.

    Us pathfinders jump into Normandy with the mission to guide the airdrops and the first Glider touches down. The Airborne assaults have begun!!

    The hairs are up on the back of my neck following all this but I promise to shut up now.
