D-Day 2016 – Ouistreham – Normandy

Black And White Photography, Joerg, Photography

I took this picture on the 6th of June 2016 (D-Day) at Ouistreham Beach – Normandy (Sword Beach). I crossed the channel with the night ferry from Portsmouth (UK) and got on Land at 6:00 in the morning. I walked down to Pegasus Bridge with a 30 kg Backpack and returned to the Beach in the afternoon, where I met some French Soldiers (Commandos maritime), we talked a bit, while they got prepared for the ceremony. This photo is dedicated to Coffee at night, running for Cigarettes and my Chief Nurse Major E.L Giles, you saved my life on a 3rd of January.

Thanks for not forgetting  … I  hope we will see again one day and talk.
