Normandy 70th Anniversary D-Day .

Postby PanzerMeyer on Tue Feb 18, 2014 12:39 am

I was just wondering if anybody is going to Normandy this year in June for the 70th Anniversary of D-Day . This is possibly the last big bash to celebrate this event as most veterans are now nearly 90 or over .

BGS will be in attendance in Normandy for the 70th anniversary . We just about finally got a camp site booked and have linked in with the new museum in Normandy twinning our museum in Duncannon , The world at War Museum , with them for tourism purposes.
We will now be meeting up with our American friends and German friends and together will have a German vehicle consisting of 12 motorcycle sidecars and solos , 2 kubels and 2 borgward personnel carriers , one of the largest groups we ever had on tour , Irish German and American combined forces which will make one hell of a touring group
We have a full itinery and have factored nearly all the commemoration ceremonies , firework displays and of course the main battle areas and defensive bunker networks and museums all over between St Mere Eglise , Deadmans corner ,Caen , Bayeaux and so on .The column will cover good ground each day and relax with beer wine and song in the evening at base camp . Wew ill be based in Vierville Sur Mere overlooking Omaha beach for the week .
Time is flying by , keep posted here for photos as we tour for the week ..
