Description

On the early morning of June 6th, 1944, thousands of young British men found themselves heading toward the coast of Normandy. Many of them had already seen years of service and fighting, from the fjords of Norway to the desert sand of Libya. For others, D-Day would be their very first experience of combat. In front of them now lay the coastal towns of Asnelles and Ver-sur-Mer within the landing sector designated by allied planners as ‘Gold Beach’.

This new Virtual Tour will take you back to that very time and to the locations as they look today to discover and learn about the bloody fighting that raged between the men of the British 50th Infantry Division and the German Army defending this stretch of the Atlantic Wall.

Using modern technology alongside veteran accounts and archive footage, we will follow those men in those first vital hours as they fought their way into fortress Europe, highlighting many powerful stories along the way, including that of the only man to be awarded the Victoria Cross on D-Day.
