A picture taken on June 2, 2014 shows a small US flag set up on graves at the US cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, ahead of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy. No effort has been spared to ensure this year’s ceremonies are a fitting tribute to the 156,000-plus troops who waded or parachuted onto French soil on June 6, 1944, approximately 4,500 of whom were dead by the day’s end.
