Former SAS soldier Andy McNab is among those who have paid tribute to the allied "heroes" of the D-Day landings in Normandy.
Never forget, in 1944 the Allied invasion began on a day that changed history. Those lads are heroes. #DDay
Heroes of the liberation of Europe have attended a ceremony in Normandy to remember the sacrifices of their fellow World War II servicemen.
The paintings, which are part of an exhibit called 'The Last Of The Tide', will be displayed on the 71st anniversary of the D-Day landings.
About 150 British ex-servicemen have crossed the English Channel to commemorate the military invasion which changed the course of history.
