As we approach the 70th anniversary of D-Day, here’s a little feature on a place of great focus to veterans on June 6.
Every year a special service of remembrance is held at Bayeux War Cemetery. It is a very moving event.
These photographs were taken two years ago, on June 6, 2012.
The event was attended by many veterans and their families.
The cemetery contains 4,144 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 338 of them unidentified. There are also over 500 war graves of other nationalities, the majority German.
