70 years ago today, hundreds of Welsh men played their part in the allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France.
The anniversary of the D-Day landings has been marked in Normandy by leaders from across the world.
David Wood reports:
Ted Owens, from Pembroke Dock, was wounded as a teenage commando, taking part in D-Day on 6 June 1944.
He told us "it is very, very important to remember" what happened in Normandy, and all of those servicemen who were lost.
