#BallardNormandie – final day

The final day in Normandie and the group had the chance to visit a D-Day landing cemetery, after a slight change of plan due to the Tour De France pre-meet!

Our final day in Normandie before heading home – lots to do and hot chocolate for breakfast…again! It’s a tough regime in Normandie!


D-Day landings

The group saw the flags of all the nations of the countries who took part in the D-Day landings.

A time to remember

With Omaha beach behind the group, they learnt all about the D-Day landings, including reading the names of many of the fallen soldiers – a great time to show respect. Our pupils were complimented on their respectful, sensible behaviour at the American Military Cemetery at Omaha Beach.

By 4pm the group was safely on board the ferry, departing for the UK.

Goodbye to France – first sight of Portsmouth with the Spinnaker Tower, just after 6pm. ETA – 7pm to port.
