... 12 men lost their lives in the explosion. You can still see how the whole top of the Battery lifted up and set back down (pic 4, pic 5). You can also see the cute kitty that decided to guard the place (at least that’s the story I made up for it).
The Batteries that are still intact, are quite impressive (pic 6, pic 7). They fired 150mm shells and could reach up to 15 miles away (pic 8). The only reason they didn’t do more damage on D-Day is because their ...

From Merville we visited the D-Day Landing Beaches of the Canadians (Juno) and British (Sword and Gold). Gold Beach is at Arromanches or Port Winston where we stayed the night on the heights above the town, where we had dinner al fresco with a bottle of Rose and an incomparable view over the ...
