British and American veterans have gathered at Portsmouth's naval dockyards to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
Fifty British and 30 US veterans returned to the historic dockyard where the D-Day boats moored, including the MTB-102 vessel that carried Churchill and General Eisenhower on a review of the armada assembled for the invasion.
