Follow the D-Day landings in real-time on Twitter


The Twitter account, @ukwarcabinet, is today Tweeting real-time updates about what was happening on this day 70 years ago, otherwise known as D-Day.

The words come direct from original war cabinet papers from 1944 and pertain to radio updates and other signals the war cabinet would have received as the battle unfolded.

With today being the 70th anniversary of D-Day tributes are being paid around the world to those that fought that day. These include 22,000 union flags being placed in the sand at Gold Beach in Normandy, 9,000 bodies being etched into the Normandy sand to represent those that fell on that first day and an 89-year old veteran recreating his parachute jump behind enemy lines.
