Man I love threads like this! I wish I could've ridden with you. I get chills seeing the memorials & landmarks.
There are a couple of threads on the UK Versys forum like this.

A big thank you for sharing...

Thanks for the pics. They bring back many memories from my visit to the D-Day invasion beaches in 1999. Perhaps one of the saddest, and yet at the same time proudest, moments of my life. I will never forget standing amid that sea of graves of those brave men who made the ultimate sacrifice for each of us. Never have so few done so much for so many. Makes you proud to be an American.

My Grandfather lost his brother there.

I wasn't born for another 15 years after that day, but a bunch of my cousins carry his name.

Thanks to all who served and gave their life to save the entire world.

I remember visiting a few years ago and was deeply moved by the experience. What stands out for me is the great care taken by the French of the memorial. They really know how to say thanks!
