We all owe so much to these wonderful engineers. If it wasn't for them, where would we be now? Such dedication deserves our best thanks.

Situated on the cliff top above Arromanche this memorial is a reminder of the price paid by the men of the Royal Engineers. Parking is available nearby and access for wheelchairs is very good.

This was a stop on our way to Arromanches-les-Bains museums but ended up staying a long while. The memorial was interesting, but the best part with seeing the new garden for the 75th day remembrance. The sculptures were amazing and definitely something to see.

At Arrowmanches the memorial to Royal Engineers sits proudly above gold beach overlooking the sea. We visited a week before the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. A somber memorial of what happened all those years ago.
