6th June 1944: "a landing has been made..." D-Day.

6 Tues. Mild - cool for the season; dull, cloudy, light showers. The invasion of the coast of France between Cherbourg and le Havre by Allied air, land and naval forces began in the early hours this morning. A landing has been made and has progressed a few miles inland. Cycled to Morden to buy fish, also bought a few things locally. Joan Storey (Conrade) with Eddie Conrade's boy - like his father. Laurie called. Aunt Liza called.
