Study Tour to France D-Day beaches 3Yesterday we went back in history to the events of world war 2 where the British, USA and Canada armed forces landed in the northern beaches of France to fight Germany.  We visited the D-Day museum, the Batterie de Longues sur mer, the American Cemetery and Omaha Beach.  We learnt that some Australians also assisted in the battles as well.  The memorials appropriately honour the men and women who sacrificed their life for freedom.  Today we are on our way to the Villers Bretonneux Australian National Memorial.
