I'm really surprised so much is remaining. Clearly visible on Google earth as well.

 

It's a great wonder such large pieces of engineering managed to be constructed without enemy knowledge.

 

All credit to the French for not removing these very important historical constructions even though they are not particularly aesthetically pleasing on an otherwise lovely beach.

Some fantastic pictures there, I spoke with one of our artists at Old warden during the last show, telling him about our forthcoming trip to Normandy and he told me about being a draftsman for the mullberrys and how he came ashore on D+4 on juno beach at a place called Graye-sur-mer, which is where the campsite is we will be staying on, as we did 5 years ago. Small world ain't it :shocked:
