Jogging Regiment?
« on: Thursday 06 June 19 18:42 BST (UK) »
Watching my local news (BBC South) with a very short clip of a D Day event in France before daybreak and soldiers were shown almost jogging, not marching. I could not see any identification......who were they?
I am sure they were from UK.
