As some of you know, I work in the Battlefield Tour business. We have 31 coaches going to Normandy for 6th June, largely attending the ceremonies at Pegasus, Ranville and Merville (mainly because of expected poor access to other areas). We have been assured for some time that no passes were needed for any of our clients, whether veterans or not, to attend these ceremonies; at the last minute the French have changed their mind and we are currently having to write to nearly 1500 people to get their passport details to get them passes. I only mention this as a warning to anyone else thinking about attending ceremonies on the 6th June, whether alone or in - or with - a group. Bon chance, mes amis!
