About the tour: D-Day 75 Anniversary


Tour Introduction

The 6th June 2019 will witness the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings, one of the turning points of the Second World War. By nightfall more than 150,000 Allied soldiers had been successfully landed and it marked the beginning of the end of Nazi Germany and the first step in the road to Victory in the West. The full details of the commemorations have yet to be released, so it is impossible to be precise about what ceremonies we will attend on the tour or which locations we will visit on our tour days. However, we will be aiming to focus on the British and Commonwealth beaches and battlefields including Gold, Juno and Sword, as well as the Pegasus Bridge area. Traditionally ceremonies we attend include the Royal British Legion event at Bayeux War Cemetery and the veteran’s event in Arromanches. Nearer the time we aim to publish more details of the final itinerary on the Leger website and Social Media.
