Pegasus Bridge
Richard, a British glider with the Airlanding Brigade, was part of the 6th Airborne (British and Canadian). He landed on the night of June 6, 1944, in a glider to the east of Sword Beach. On the night of June 5-6, 1944, during Operation Tonga, units of the 6th Division were the first to fight in the Normandy landings. They were dropped by gliders and parachuted behind Sword Beach to secure the eastern flank of the allied landing zone. Their objectives included the capture of Pegasus Bridge and the bridge of the River Orne, as well as the destruction of the Merville battery - all of which were achieved. Operation Tonga continued with the parachuting of further divisional units to hold the sector and counter German counter-offensives.
