I saw a program on youtube suggesting there was another beach adjacent to Sword called Band. Forgotten history.

Hardly the "scoop" that Dr Felton tries to play it off as, it's easy to find references to Band Beach...  Playing it up as "forgotten history" plays well to his audience, I guess.

Band beach was never mentioned in books I read about D Day. So the video was educational.

I had never heard of Band beach other.  I found the video pretty educational also - a little tidbit of the operation that was essential and important, yet I hadn't learned about either.  Good find T6  :nod:

I saw that! Had no idea they'd named them after fish, and that we were going to be the 'Jellies'.
