69th anniversary of D-day landings

Across Normandy, France, several hundred of the surviving veterans of the Overlord campaign are gathering to commemorate the 69th anniversary of the D-day landings which eventually led to the Allied liberation of France in 1944. Next year, which will mark the 70th anniversary of the landings, is widely expected to be the last time that the veterans will gather in any great number.
