wonderful museum surroundings, unfortunately missed the opening hours by mere minutes. Oh well, all the reason to make another visit👍 I was wondering, seeing the Horsa from above, if it's located in the actual position of one of the gliders during the assault?

Congratulations to Major Alan Hames on the award of the Colonel in Chief’s (Rifles) Commendation.
For 17 years, Alan has led the Oxfordshire Cadet force to Normandy to participate in the annual D-Day Commemorations enabling over 250 cadets to have benefited from his expertise. The Oxfordshire cadets are now an integral part of the D-Day ceremonies at the Memorial Pegasus Museum and at the various Ox and Bucks monuments in the area.
Alan, the cadets, aided and abetted by his Alan’s wife Margaret, are present to give a helping hand on 5th June making the commemoration one of the highlights for many of the visitors who attend the D-Day Ceremonies.
The museum is indebted to him and his wife.
Following Alan’s retirement from the cadet force his son, Captain Mark Hames, now leads the cadets to Normandy in June. Long may it continue.
Congratulations Alan.

Well done Alan, I didn't realise you were a Major, I've always admired people that help the young people, and well done to your son.

Thank you for the congratulations. This year, 2019, was the 21st Annual Tour. I am still actively involved and will continue to be so.

Students from the French Ecole Polytechnique visited the museum today.
The Ecole Polytechnique , one of the most prestigious higher education engineering schools in the world has a reputation for academic excellence. Only the highest achievers gain entrance to the school, which was founded in 1794.
The group, studying for a Masters degree in science and technology, was composed principally of foreign students from around the world.
After graduation, students are destined for the higher echelons of the civil service and the military in their respective countries.
One of the most visible images of Ecole Polytechnique is on 14th July, Bastille Day, when students march alongside the military on the Champs Elysées in their uniforms complete with bicorn hat.

D-Day veteran Field Marshal Lord Bramall (95) died yesterday.
As a young 2nd Lieutenant, in the Kings Royal Rifles Corps, Edwin Bramall landed on the afternoon of 6th June 1944 on Gold Beach. He fought in the campaign in North Western Europe, on several occasions stepping on mines, which did not explode! Edwin Bramall was decorated for gallantry in March 1945 with the Military Cross
Lord Bramall continued with a career in the Army retiring in 1985 as Chief of the Defence Staff, the professional head of the British armed forces. He was the last serving member of the British Armed Forces to have landed on D-Day.
Several years ago, Lord Bramall visited the museum with his family. He is remembered as a charming, inspirational man with a great sense of humour.
