I Remember this.
Anybody else,I was 13 yrs old..


Gold beach – Around 25,000 British soldier landed on Gold Beach on D-Day with the aim of capturing Bayeux and the Caen-Bayeux road to link up with the Americans who had landed at Omaha Beach. The tide had risen more quickly than expected at Gold Beach so many defences underwater were concealed – but luckily initial air and naval bombardments had been successful at combating these meaning Brits were able to advance six miles inland by the end of the day to join Canadians soldiers who had landed at Juno.
Juno Beach – Canadian soldiers landed at Juno to find their delayed landing – caused by rough seas – meant the width of the beach had been significantly reduced. This caused a jam for vehicles and equipment, seriously impeded their advancement. Heavy defences meant the Canadians were unable to join up with British soldiers from sword beach on the first day, but they were able to advance several miles inland and meet with soldiers from Gold Beach.
Sword beach – This was the easternmost beach and was landed by British soldiers. The beach was narrow, which caused delays and congestion and made for a difficult landing and subsequent advancement inland. It failed to take Caen, which had been its key objective and this became a focal point in the battles after D-Day but it wasn’t until July that the city was taken.
Cheers William.
