This tour is unique because we get to see both Utah and Omaha beaches in a day trip from Paris. Woman 1: I thought the visit to Utah beach was great. It was beautiful. I was excited to be part of the day, to see that. Man 1: It's a humbling experience really to go to Normandy beach. Something that I think that'll change our life forever. Woman 2: I really enjoyed going to the cider farms. It was just quite wonderful to see the product and how they grow it, and the pride that they take in their product. Man 2: The lunch was excellent, too. It was just wonderful, and the restaurant was a very nice restaurant. Julia: So you can imagine what it was like on D-Day standing up there and seeing all the ships coming in all directions and all the soldiers.

Seeing all those crosses and realizing the thousands of soldiers that died that day during that battle with Normandy was, just frankly, an overwhelming feeling to me. Man 1: The guides were extremely helpful and informative. They really did an excellent job. We really got so much out of the experience. And to think that our soldiers, our allies fought for us during World War II is really a humbling experience, and we'll never forget it. Julia: This tour's really special to me because my grandfather took part the D-Day landings, so every time I come here, I always think about him.

D-Day revisited: assault on Sword Beach
 
04:42
As the 70th anniversary of D-Day approaches, Lord Ashcroft travels to Sword Beach and stands, for the first time, where his father was wounded and where so many of his comrades fell. This Friday is being billed as the "Normandy Swan Song", when Second World War veterans, now mostly in their nineties, will visit France for the last time in significant numbers. On June 6 1944, more than 155,000 men crossed the Channel in the greatest sea invasion in military history. Their bravery ultimately turned the course of the war in the Allies' favour. Lord Ashcroft's father Eric was among the men from The South Lancashire Regiment who landed on Sword Beach, where they were greeted by anti-tank, mortar, machine-gun and rifle fire. Seventy years after that horrific day, he retraces their steps using original maps and recordings.

D-Day anniversary: 89-year-old veteran makes parachute jump
 
02:05
Jock Hutton, 89, who was one of the first Allied soldiers to land in occupied France on D-Day in June 1944, takes part in a jump with the Red Devils from around 5,000ft above Normandy. "At my age life tends to get a wee bit boring. So you've got to grab at any chance at excitement!" That was the verdict of 89-year-old D-Day veteran Jock Hutton after he had jumped from a plane at 5,000 feet on Thursday in his own unique act of commemoration for this week's 70th anniversary of D-Day. The Scot landed in the same field outside the Normandy village of Ranville where 70 years ago, as a member of the 13th Battalion of Britain's Parachute Regiment, he was part of the first wave of troops taking part in the Allied invasion of continental Europe. In a concession to Hutton's advanced age, Thursday's skydive was undertaken in tandem with a member of the Red Devils, Colour Sergeant Billy Blanchard. But it was ten times higher than when he landed 70 years ago. "They (the Red Devils) made me feel very relaxed but I wanted to get out of that door!" Hutton said. "We dropped very low (on D-Day). We didn't have as much time in the air as we did just then. We smashed into the ground ... my tailbone is now my collarbone!" The pair touched down on the grass just in front of Prince Charles, who waited for the veteran to compose himself before stepping forward to shake his hand.

D-Day 70th anniversary celebrations end in spectacular style with huge daytime fireworks display as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge meet British veterans for tea party The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived in Normandy to meet British veterans who risked their lives on D-Day. They joined a tea party with former soldiers after events commemorating the invasion's 70th anniversary ended in style with a firework display in front of world leaders at Sword Beach in Ouistreham. The Duke of Cambridge made a speech during an memorial event in Arromanches-les-Bains - paying tribute to those who gave their lives 70 years ago He said: 'They gave up everything for our freedom. They lie now together in the beautifully kept cemeteries that lie on the coast.' 'However, today is also about the young. It is vital for them that they remember the sacrifice made by so many.' Prince William then laid a wreath in front of hundreds of former soldiers at an event on Gold Beach. The royal couple were then shown a reenactment of the D Day landings. Earlier in the day, the Queen led tributes to the 'immense and heroic endeavour' of the 150,000 Allied troops who attacked Nazi-occupied France on June 6 1944. He described D-Day's violent scene in vivid terms, recalling that 'by daybreak, blood soaked the water' and 'thousands of rounds bit into flesh and sand.' normandy d day tours, d day tours normandy, normandy tours, normandy beaches tours, normandy beaches tour, tours of normandy, normandy tour, tours of normandy beaches, normandy sightseeing tours, normandy d day tour, tour of normandy, tours to normandy, normandy day tours, normandy guided tours, tour of normandy beaches, normandy beach tours, tour normandy, normandy battle tours, battle of normandy tours, tours of normandy france d day 70th anniversary, 70th anniversary of d-day, 70th anniversary d-day, 70th d day anniversary, d-day 70th anniversary tour, d day landings 70th anniversary, d day 70th, 70th anniversary d day normandy, 70th d day celebrations news/article-2650417/Dawn-breaks-Longest-Day-Flags-fly-half-mast-beaches-Northern-France-70-years-ago-today-150-000-Allied-troops-mounted-biggest-amphibious-invasion-D-Day

D-Day anniversary: veterans pay final tribute
 
02:11
War veterans and world leaders in Britain and France commemorate the D-Day landings in Normandy that helped defeat Nazi Germany 70 years ago. Gone are the screaming shells, seasick soldiers and bloodied waters of 1944. On Friday, a sun-splattered Normandy celebrated peace, with silent salutes, tears and international friendship marking 70 years since the D-Day invasion helped change the course of World War II and modern history. Few of the 150,000 Allied soldiers who slogged onto storm-torn beaches or parachuted into Normandy remain alive to pass on the legacy of that "longest day." Some survivors stood, somber-faced and proud, alongside their comrades as they paid tribute to those who fell in history's biggest amphibious invasion. The veterans' hands, which once wrested France from Nazi occupation, saluted wizened faces. Some rose to their feet with difficulty. Thousands of onlookers applauded. Staged on the very beach stormed by British troops on June 6, 1944, presidents, prime ministers and monarchs, including the Queen, watched a symbolic ceremony that marked the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings. During a solemn open air ceremony at the Commonwealth War Graves cemetery, the Last Post was followed by an emotional minute's silence under sunshine and clear blue skies. Moments after the Queen arrived, a fly-past of historic aircraft - two Spitfires, a Dakota and a Lancaster bomber - roared overhead as they flew in formation. Earlier, a remembrance service took place in Bayeux Cathedral, where biblical lessons were read and hymns sung. With many of the veterans now in their late 80s and 90s, it is believed that this will be the last large gathering of its kind.
