The famous Pegasus Bridge is there with its Café Gondrée which was the first house in France to be liberated during the night of the 5th-6th of June 1944 by the British gliders of Major Howard.

    Was that the John Howard of the 7th Parachute Battalion who ditched their Glider from 8,000 feet actually 3 gliders and took the bridge without a gun fight?? with 90 British Paratroop Commandos. I think Iv'e seen the movie in black and white called attack on the Iron Bridge..
