Commemoration will remember D-Day

  • by Arielle Bruins
 

PEOPLE are invited to a D-Day commemoration ceremony in Gosport.

The service will mark the 70th anniversary of Operation Overlord.

It will be led by the Horndean band and the parade starts at Hardway slipway car park.

The parade gathers at 9.40am and goes to the foreshore at 10am. The service will then begin at 10.15am.

As part of the ceremony on June 8, a stone brought over from Caen, France, will be installed to commemorate the anniversary.

The stone was part of a bridge that was destroyed by the Germans during their retreat.

Parking will be available at the George Kingsbury car park in Quay Lane.

Priory Road between the junction of Green Lane and the Jolly Roger will be closed between 9am and 10am.
