The Battle of #PortEnBessin is commemorated today, 75 years after @RoyalMarines overcame huge odds to take the critical town on the French coast. Veterans have returned, one for the first time in 75 years. They’ll be honoured for their role in the #NormandyInvasion #DDay75 @GMB
Was an honour to meet four surviving veterans, each who played their own role in this difficult, dangerous and seemingly impossible to win battle. They overcame huge difficulties, performing a ‘military miracle’

From L>R: Chuck Harris, Mark Packer, Norman Rose, Fred Fitch
Today serving @RoyalMarines and their band will march through Port En Bessin, the scene exactly 75 years ago of heavy street fighting and displays of unbelievable bravery. @RNRMC #DDay75 #NormandyInvasion
