Normandy - flyersfan

This is a mannequin of John Steele of the 82 Airborne who's parachute was hung-up on this church steeple during the Airborne drop into Normandy on D-Day. John Steele played dead on this steeple for nearly 4 hours, watching the carnage below, before finally being captured by the Germans. However, and thankfully, shortly after his capture he was rescued by the advancing US troops.
