77 years ago today, June 6th 1944, Operation Neptune began. The opening phase of Operation Overlord, saw six infantry divisions landed by sea and three by air totally over 150,000 men. There were a total of five landing beaches, two American, two British and one Canadian. Yesterday I posted some pictures of the US landing forces but it was a joint landing so wanted to showcase the commonwealth forces as well.
