D - Day Commmemorative Drive - Updated 23nd June 2019  

Quite a turnout along the Gosport Road on Saturday (22nd June) for the D-Day commemorative parade from Swanwick to Newbury.

Spectators were assembled in the sunshine as they waited, and waited a bit more, for the parade of vehicles re-enacting the journey made by General Dwight D Eisenhower from Swanwick to visit troops ahead of D-day.

The parade was dedicated to the memory of all those who took part in the Normandy Landings in 1944.

Eventually the parade arrived in Farringdon en route to a short stop at Lasham airfield before travelling on to the old airfield site at Greenham Common near Newbury in Berkshire.
