We had some difficulty finding Fière Bridge and arrived early evening. It was very quiet and as I stood by Iron Mike gazing across the valley I felt the ghosts of those brave men. The site and memorial is beautifully maintained and there is parking by the bridge and the memorial. We had not been able to see the annual parachute drop as we couldn’t get our motorhome parked within walking distance. From St Mere Eglise it is 3km walk as the road is closed on the day. We are not as fit as we once were. Next year we will be better prepared. Also worth doing in this context is the D D Day experience Dakota simulator when for a few short minutes you are a parachutist flying to France on DDay.
