Very few Australians were left in Europe by D-Day..our infantry divisions had been pulled out to fight in the Pacific..of the ones who were there most were in the airforce and most of them were bomber crew..

Amid all the hoopla of D-Day official commemorations here's a nice little story about a man who returned to France to say thank you and to lay some demons to rest...

Thank God there's an Aussie angle. I was beginning to worry that there was no point to all this D Day chit chat for us down under.

Makes it seem a lot more interesting.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing.

Also love that his nickname was 'Ned'. With a last name of 'Kelly' and being Ozzie I suppose that was inevitable. laugh
