The Royal Engineers and D-Day

75 years on from the D-Day landings, we look back at the Royal Engineer’s role in this pivotal episode in history. Each day we will be exploring a different aspect of the landings, otherwise known as Operation Overlord. The Corps’ motto ‘ubique’, meaning everywhere, was perfectly demonstrated in June 1944 and indeed during the years of planning for D-Day, as Engineers were deeply involved in all aspects of Overlord, on land, sea or air.

Talks, tours and a chance to see items not usually on public display will shed light on the perhaps lesser known aspects of the landings, such as the huge and dangerous effort to survey enemy held beaches and the movement across the Channel of the enormous Mulberry Harbours as well as the significant role played by the Corps’ ‘Funnies’, the specialised armoured vehicles, and Airborne Engineers.

All talks/tours/workshops are included in standard admission prices. See website for full details.
