THE son of an important naval commander paid a visit to the D-Day Museum as he opened a building named after his father.

General Charles Ramsay attended the opening of the new Ramsay Building at training facility HMS Collingwood.

As previously reported, the building was named after Major General Ramsay’s father – Admiral Sir Bertram Ramsay.

After the opening, Major General Ramsay asked to visit the D-Day Museum, in Clarence Esplanade, Southsea.

He was interested because of his father’s involvement in the battle.

Admiral Sir Bertram Ramsay was the allied naval commander on D-Day, and played a huge role in planning the 1944 Normandy Landings.

Major General Ramsay and his wife were accompanied by Commodore Mike Mansergh, of the Maritime Warfare School at HMS Collingwood, as they visited the museum.

They viewed displays, many of which related to Admiral Ramsay and how the events of D-Day unfolded.
