The National Memorial Arboretum – 74th anniversary of D-Day

6th June 2018 marked the 74th anniversary of the D-Day landings so we headed to the National Memorial Arboretum in Burton-on-Trent for a day of remembrance. We were lucky enough to be joined by around 40 veterans who had contacted Remembrance Travel & asked to be part of this LIBOR funded tour and it truly was a day to remember! The veterans, their family and carers participated in a Service of Remembrance before enjoying some lunch (entertained by some very special guests!) and then time to explore aboard the Arboretums Land Train. It was a very special day for all involved and we’re so looking forward to being a part of next year’s 75th anniversary.
