-A World War Two 100 year old veteran, has returned to France to marry his 96-year-old bride as world leaders gathered to commemorate D-Day.

Almost exactly to the day 80 years ago, troops parachuted in behind Nazi lines to capture Carentan and stop German reinforcements from defending the beaches.

More than 4,000 Allied soldiers died – and entire boats filled with men were lost when they stormed the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944.

 Last week’s 80th anniversary of D-Day could likely be the last major commemoration where WWII veterans are present.

But one of them, Harold Terens, a 100 year old man showed it’s never too late for love when he married his sweetheart Jeanne Swerlin, 96, near the Normandy beaches on Saturday, June 8.

The couple were invited to spend their wedding-night with French President Emmanuel Macron and the USA’s President Biden at a state dinner in the Élysée Palace.

Mr Terens called it ‘the best day of my life’.
