About the tour: D-Day 78th Anniversary & Normandy Memorial

Tour Introduction

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.
