There were mostly oldies on the tour and they thought that George was hilarious. We saw the German batteries with some of the ...
... 70 years ago, and the use made of them by the combined British, Canadian and American Forces to land and push through to end this terrible war. On a lighter note, we all decided to go out for a meal to wish Kieran and Anthea "bon voyage". They were making for the ferry the next day because of commitments at home, one of which was Anthea's daughter's Hen Party, culminating in a trip to see Dolly Parton! The meal was not that brilliant but the company was ...
