We often forget that news reporting takes lives, I am shocked by all those names. We commemorate the war victim, but we should certainly not forget journalists. Visit this place, see the names and look some up on the internet. Freedom comes at a price. Beautiful memorial, a bit tucked away but understated and dignified. Not to be forgotten when visiting Bayeux

This is an absolute must-do when visiting Bayeux. It is right on the way to/from the war cemetery. I spent a good 30 minutes trudging through the muddy walkway on a soaking wet winter afternoon, reflecting. "If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter". God speed to the souls of all these heroic women and men who died to bring us the truth. "Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freedom of speech". Lest we forget.

This is a garden of remembrance and memorial, not a museum, but it's worth the walk to visit if you're stopping to see the Battle of Normandy museum and the war graves opposite. As an Australian, it was particularly moving to see the names of the Balibo Five, five journalists killed in East Timor in 1975.

We found this rather easily when walking around Bayeux, even though it is on the outskirts and not the center of the town. It is well kept and an interesting concept to acknowledge those who without their reporting many of the stories we know now would not exist.

Come out of the 'Normandy Museum', facing the road, turn right (to the city toilets, and keep on walking, over the bridge onto a grass track. Every year has a large white plinth that resembles a large CWCG stone but is headed by a single year. Every war correspondent is then carved on to the stone. It is horrifying that so many have been killed doing the information gathering for us. They are the nameless and faceless persons killed for doing their job. Sobering,
