Discover the important role of Poland’s military during the Normandy landings at this special anniversary event.
Join us to celebrate how Poland’s navy, army and air force helped ensure that D-Day and the allied invasion of mainland Europe was a success. In addition to an exciting programme of activities, an exhibition, in both English and Polish, will reveal wartime links between Poland and Portsmouth and the story of an amazing Polish spy codenamed Brutus.
The event is being organised by the British-Polish charity 307 Squadron Project and will be a day of international cooperation between Portsmouth and Poland. The D-Day Story is proud to host this special one day event in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
The event is included in the admission price for the museum.
Re-opened in April 2018, the D-Day Story takes the visitors through the build up to the event, D-Day itself and the Battle of Normandy. The story is told through the perspectives of the people involved using objects, interactives and video. The impressive 83-metre long Overlord Embroidery offers a fantastic finale to the visit.
Bring your nostalgic D-Day and WW2 objects to the museum for identification by an expert panel of museum Curators. Throughout the day there will be talks by Curators from The Keep Military Museum and The Museum of Army Chaplaincy.
