Memorial to No. 6 Commando, Amfreville, Normandy

No. 6 led the way across Pegasus Bridge on D-Day and headed for the high ground which is around Amfreville. In concert with 1st Special Service Brigade they attacked and took the feature on the morning of 7 June. Despite heavy German artillery fire over the next days, which caused many casualties, No. 6 held on. The nearby farm was owned by Bernard Saulnier, and with his initiative the Commandos were welcomed back every year after the war. On the 40th Anniversary Bernard had around 700 people in his barn which was then named 'Commando Farm'.
