    We came here after our visit to Pegasus Memorial Museum and Musée de la Batterie de Merville.

    This is a solemn place, which is beautifully looked after by the residents of Ranville.

    One of the reasons that we added this to our tour was that we had just read about a young paratrooper who parachuted in with his paratrooper dog. The dog used a bicycle parachute. Unfortunately both were killed by friendly fire on D-Day and were buried in the same grave at Ranville cemetery. We came to pay our respects to them both.

    - Buried in the same grave as his dog 'Glenn', mascot of 9 Para
