In the American sector of Omaha Beach, a ceremony took place in St-Laurent-sur-Mer today, it was the occasion for local children to learn what occurred there, 66 years ago. An occasion also for D-Day veterans, to meet one another who will never forget this date.
The meeting was not planned and yet these two veterans had many memories to share, Richard Williams, an American infantryman who stormed the beach of Omaha with the 26th Infantry Regiment meet for the first time Cyril G. Banks, an English sailor who served on a Royal Navy minesweeper on D-Day.
A meeting made possible by Sebastien Olard organiser of the ceremony, when asked where he lives, the reply is always Omaha Beach!
