Bernieres and Saint Aubin villages

Juno Beach at Saint Aubin

On this eastern side of Juno Beach, two other infantry regiments attacked : the Queen’s Own Rifles and the North Shore. At Bernières, where La Chaudière Regiment later landed, is located the main monument close to the famous "Canadian House" that is in so many D-Day pictures, and which still permanently flies a Canadian flag.

The German resistance in this area and then the counter-attack from the south caused the slow progression inland toward Caen and stopped the troops from reaching the Carpiquet airfield.
