Video: Pegasus Bridge assault to be marked at D-Day anniversary


On June 5, ceremonies will take place at Ranville, the first village to be liberated on D-Day, as well as at Pegasus Bridge, site of the famous assault immortalised in the film The Longest Day. This year will be particularly poignant, as it is the last to be officially marked by the NVA, which announced that after this June it will no longer be taking trips to France for the D-Day anniversary and plans to officially disband after the summer's events.
