Sword Beach

British D-Day landing beach.

Like Gold Beach, Sword Beach was one of the Normandy landing beaches taken by the British as part of the important day which ended World War II.

British troops of the 3rd Infantry Division landed first on Sword Beach, which extends between Lion sur Mer to the west and Ouistreham to the east. The British allied landings were limited to a 2km stretch, between Hermanville sur Mer and Colleville-sur-Orne, divided into two sectors: Queen White and Queen Red.

On the evening of June 6th, 1944, the 3rd Division disembarked 2,8845 men and 2,603 vehicles. 630 men were killed or wounded in action.
