Veterans of World War Two lay a wreath at Ranville War Cemetery in Normandy, France. This film was shot on Wednesday 4th June 2014 as the veterans returned to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day.

Ranville was the first village to be liberated in France when parachutists landed here in the early hours of June 6th 1944. 2,300 Commonwealth soldiers lie in the Ranville's War Cemetery and churchyard, along with some 330 Germans and a number of other nationalities.
