Normandy August 2014 – Day#03 Friday 15th August

Return to Operation GOODWOOD…

Having had an excellent breakfast prepared by Patrick’s wife, Annick, we set off towards Caen. Our first stop-off was at a large car boot sale (well, why not)… in the background was the remaining cooling tower from the old Colombelles steel works which was used as an observation post by the defending Germans during Operation GOODWOOD – more of which next year! (or this year as I’m late in typing this!!)

… and EPSOM

We next headed back (“not again!!” from Glyn) into Operation EPSOM country to take a few final photographs that I’d realised I’d missed on our earlier visits.

We ended the day at St Manvieu Commonwealth War Cemetery which contains many of the dead of Operation EPSOM
