Guided D-Day tour following the specific soldiers, units or regiments
We know where virtually every unit came ashore on D-Day and we can follow the progress of most groups of soldiers. We can track individual Battalions across Normandy, and you can follow in the footsteps of a family member or a regiment or unit in which you have a specific interest.
The following would be typical of this type of tour. In April 2014 we created a one-day tour for a guest who wanted to know about his mother’s cousin who was with the Royal Warwickshires. We took him to some of their key battle sites and we found where his battalion was on the day he was killed, showing him where the engagements took place and giving a good overview of his relative’s last movements. We took him to the grave at Bayeux where he placed a poppy cross on his relative’s grave. We can research individuals through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission or Forces War records.
This type of ad-hoc research, combined with Malcolm’s detailed knowledge of the events of D-Day and its aftermath make for very interesting and individual itineraries.
