D-Day veterans

British D-Day veterans, all from Wiltshire (L to R), Wally Ball, Doug Blakey, Bernie Howell, Bob Corney, George French, Gordon Smith and and Albert William stand on Sword Beach at Hermanville-sur-Mer on the Normandy coast. Some 3,000 veterans are among those attending ceremonies across the northern French coastline where Allied forces landed in the largest seaborne invasion in history to help speed up the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War Two.Toby Melville, Reuters
