D-Day Landings 75 Years On

Dyfed and Glamorgan Army and Cadet Force in Normandy

The D-Day landings which began exactly 75 years ago today, has been marked by a poignant event in northern France.

The invasion by allied forces, which ultimately ended World War Two, was marked by a lone piper on a Normandy beach.

GI Clifford 'Limey' Guard from Swansea is among those who have travelled there for today's commemorations.

He shared with us a video of his visit to Omaha Beach. 

1,500 army cadets travelled to France last week to learn more about what soldiers went through on this day in 1944.

Their guide got them to take part in a reenactment by getting them to run from the water up the beach.

Our reporter Emma Grant spoke to Dyfed and Glamorgan Army and Cadet Force's Colonel Commandant Brian Westlake-Toms about their trip to Normandy.
