A rather good photo (I think) of the infamous bridge taken on the 6th June 1944. This was the scene of the first British landing on D-Day, when men of the 6th Airborne Division used gliders (which can be clearly seen in the image) to land behind enemy lines and secure the bridge over the Caen Canal. This was later re-named 'Pegasus' bridge, in honour of the badge worn by the 6th Airborne. You can really appreciate the skill of the pilots getting so close to the bridge in total darkness. As well as the three Horsa Gliders slightly North East of the bridge if you look directly North you can see another single aircraft (Allied?) that appears to be flying very low looking at the shadow just infront of it.
