  The Prince of Wales - HRH unveils a statue of Brigadier James Hill
Brigadier James Hill, 93, was present with his wife Joanne at the unveiling of the bronze statue at Le Mesnil where 60 years ago, on the 6th June 1944, he rallied his troops in the vital first hours of D-Day.
Brigadier Hill commanded the 3rd Parachute Brigade on June 6, 1944 when 2,500 men jumped into enemy territory in Normandy with the vital task of holding the eastern flank of the Allied forces against the German counter-attack while the troops on the beaches secured a foothold in Europe.
Brigadier Hill was wounded early on in the fighting, but continued in command to make sure his troops were successful in repelling the German attacks.
