BAYEUX, FRANCE - JUNE 06: Normandy Veteran 90-year-old Jim Kelly, (a Royal Marine who landed on Sword Beach on D-Day) carries a wreath at a remembrance and wreath laying ceremony to commemorate the start of the D-Day landings at Bayeux War Cemetery on June 6, 2013 in Bayeux, France. Across Normandy several hundred of the surviving veterans of the Normandy campaign are gathering to commemorate the 69th anniversary of the D-Day landings which eventually led to the Allied liberation of France in 1944. Next year, which will mark the 70th anniversary of the landings, is widely expected to be the last time that the veterans will gather in any great number. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)
