Pegasus Bridge, which spans the Caen Canal, is a vital part of the history of D Day, and the Normany landings. Now replaced by a replica, the original structure can still be seen, close by, at an excellent museum, devoted to the bridge and the events of 1944. A wide range of artifacts, including a reconstructed Horsa glider, and a fascinating, constantly running, film tell the story. Poignant and thought provoking - especially if coupled with a trip to the nearby beaches. ("Gold", "Juno" and "Sword" are within especially easy reach) It was good to see parties of school children, at the museum, learning about this important story - but the noise was phenomenal! It you want to absorb the exhibits, in an atmosphere of quiet contemplation, avoid term time!
