Sherwood Rangers ceremony in Berjou

Maggie and I attended an intimate ceremony in Berjou that, for the first time in 70 years, marked the return of the Sherwood Rangers.

On D-Day, the Rangers landed on Gold Beach and were the first British battalion to enter Bayeux. Bayeux would become the first French town to be liberated on 7th June 1944.

Two months later, the Rangers navigated their tanks to the village of Berjou to close the emerging “Falaise Pocket”.
