Wow, what a brilliant turn-out for Saunton D-Day! We are immensely proud of what a huge success the D-Day commemorations on Saunton beach was and so proud to have been a sponsor. Large crowds flocked to the beach (despite the turbulent weather!) to mark 75 years since the Normandy battle. A fantastic display of military vehicles, history camps, a thrilling re-enactment of military action and a battle, plus a fantastic performance of The Liberty Sisters warmed the hearts of all visitors.
The team put everything they could into capturing the wartime atmosphere, and every little detail was thought about, from the outfits and guns to the smoke and explosions, nothing was forgotten. Many visitors have commented on the authenticity and how much they learned from the difficult time, which is so important in keeping the memory alive.
We’re thrilled so many visitors have shared their pictures from the weekend and we’d love to see more, so please do share them with us on social media.
