Discovered: The remains of five Nazi soldiers killed on D-Day

The remains of five Nazi soldiers gunned down by British troops on D-Day have been discovered in northern France

Still surrounded by their World War II German helmets and ammunition clips, they were found almost exactly 65 years to the day since Allied forces stormed ashore on June 6th 1944. 

Scraps of camouflage smocks and tunic buttons also adorn the mangled skeletons, which were all hastily placed face down in a shallow grave ten feet long and four feet wide.
