Event details

The D-Day operation on 6 June 1944 was the largest invasion in history. 

Rediscover stories from this crucial event with the East Yorkshire Regiment Living History Group

Join us to find out about the men, kit and vehicles involved in the Normandy landings, which were the beginning of Allied efforts that, ultimately, would lead to the liberation of Western Europe, the defeat of Nazi Germany and the end of WWII.
