Tanks and bulldozers land. A flair burns on shore.
Commandos sail towards a crowded beach
British commandos exit the landing craft. Directly in front of the camera is bagpiper Bill Millin. In the water to the right of the column is the unit’s commander – Brigadier the Lord Lovat.
British troops wait for orders to advance up the beach
The wounded being cared for
Sword Beach soon fills with vehicles and men
Royal Marine Commandos move inland
Commandos clear Ouistreham in house to house fighting
Tanks pass through Lion sur Mer
