D-Day 75th Anniversary
D-Day 75th Anniversary – Thursday 6th June 2019
As many of you will know, the 6th of June this year will be the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord – the Normandy Landings, also known as D-Day.
There are many national and international events planned to mark this historic occasion, and in the Romanby War Memorial Garden, we shall have our Romanby “Tommies” back on display (a few days beforehand), along with a special small display in the Garden for Leading Aircraftsman John Leslie Mackintosh, one of our Memorial Men who landed in Normandy as part of the invasion forces, and who died some 2 months later aged just 21.
We will publish more closer to the date.Back to news stories
