The British 50th Infantry Division under General Graham reached Asnelles and Ver-sur-Mer at around 7:25 in the morning. German resistance was strong at both ends of the landing zone, but the enemy troops were pushed to the centre and were unable to prevent the British from penetrating inland. In the evening of 6 June, the 50th Division’s vanguard was at the gates of Bayeux, which they entered the following day without bloodshed. Meanwhile, in the late afternoon alongside the coast, the 1st Hampshire regiment took Arromanches, where one of the artificial ports was to be set up.
