    Jonathan Ball It's a way of life.

    Love to see your photos Stan. It all got a bit hectic on the Friday afternoon in Arromanches for me so went for a stroll up the hill to the 360 cinema. Stunning view of the BBMF fly past.

    The chateau is Chateau La Londe, the 'bloodiest square mile in Normandy'.

    The veteran featured is Bert Barritt who was wounded in the assault on it on 27th June 1944 while serving with 2nd East Yorks.
