Pictures of this year's Commando march (Sword - Pegasus bridge - Amfréville) and our previous participation on Mérville battery from our point of view ("Hand of Steel" reenacting group CZ).
To commemorate the veterans and simply to enjoy the march we tried to give all our possible efforts to make our kit as real as possible, incl. the bergen weight etc.

Despite the weather, which was more like on Sicily, it was a very strong and emotional experience! Especially the arrival to the bridge. Thanks to "France 44" for invitation!
Shame.. but as far as I know none of the british Commando reenactors wasn't there.

Glad Sebastien and the rest are still doing this march - we did it in 2004 with Monty's Men and then hooked up independently with France 1944 in 2006; was hoping to catch up in person this year but sitting in a hole at Gold Beach seemed to be the order of the day ;)

To be fair haven't gone commando for the last 6 or so years but it was fun. Well done for carrying it on, chaps :)
