My Wife has brought this to my attention and I had to share. This is it reported by the Daily Mail. The view you see is from one of the Normandy beaches and shows thousands of silhouettes representing those who lost their lives on D-Day no matter their nationality. Please click on the link for the full story, I hope you will find it of great interest.
It does remind me of the time the CND sprayed outlines on the pavements and roads in town centres to represent the dead from the first two Atomic Bombs when I was only about sixteen years old. The beach one is that bit more symbolic in how they were removed from the beach.
