Assemble at Portsmouth Harbour to catch the afternoon ferry to Caen/Ouistreham.
This morning is spent visiting some of the locations of actions fought by Third British Infantry Division following the landings at Sword Beach. We begin with a look at the engagement at strong point 'Hillman' by the Suffolk Regiment. We move on to the Bieville Ridge where the attempt to reach Caen by the Kings Shropshire Light Infantry and Staffordshire Yeomanry was brought to a halt by 21st Panzer Division. Finally we examine the actions of the Warwickshire Regiment around Lebisey. After lunch to Pegasus Bridge to discuss the defence of the bridge against the German counterattacks.
