The American Cemetery at Colleville sur Mer, one of the sites for the Normandy landing. I wasn't quite sure what to expect - and I didn't expect to be scanned at the visitors centre - but the museum was surprisingly interesting and the cemetery was rather calm and beautiful.

Great pics. These places knock me out every time. I was taken to Etaples and other cemeteries when I was 13 by my French exchange parents, and recently took my dad to his uncle's grave at Bethune. Pivotal moments.

I suppose the cemetery is a little like the American approach to war – shock and awe. The scale of it is shocking and I was left somewhat in awe of the cleanliness, precision and uniformity of it all. It is a cared-for site. What interested me was the ways the uniform lines were broken – flowers left by relatives, the Star of David in stead of a cross and so on.

Thanks for your comments all. I wasn’t particularly happy with this set of photos. Most came out rather grey and murky.

Oh Fishsausage. You've given me my first real laugh of the day.

How did the operation go? I owe you an email.

my left arm has a huge cut, and what isn't cut is bruised. i only had a local injection so i was out the day after
still fairly weak, though, but will be back at work tomorrow

It sounds like they gave you a real going over then. Hope you get your strength back today though.
