D-Day 78th Anniversary & Normandy Memorial
The Normandy Memorial Trust unveiled the new British Normandy Memorial on 77th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings. Overlooking Gold Beach, one of the principal landing beaches, the new Memorial lists every man and woman who died in the Normandy Campaign and acts as a focal point for British visitors to the D-Day Beaches. Join us for the 78th Anniversary commemorations of D-Day, where you will be able to see the Memorial and attend ceremonies at the Bayeux War Cemetery and in the Main Square in Arromanches. We will also visit some British and Commonwealth sites including Gold Beach, Juno Beach and Sword Beach, as well as Pegasus Bridge and Ranville War Cemetery.
