Sorry, but we have had to cancel this event
Join us on Thursday 25th of June for the second of our D-Day themed visits, this time to Allied Naval Headquarters, Southwick House, Southwick, Fareham, Hampshire PO17 6EJ where we will visit the 1944 D-Day Map Room to view the original wall map and plans of the D-Day landings of 6th June 1944.
A special 10:00 am private group booking has been arranged for us by our member Mike Crockett, and we understand that we will be permitted to photograph our MGs in front of this splendid historic building.
A curator will give us a 45-minute talk in the Map Room, after which we can visit the Royal Military Police Museum on the same site.
In advance of our visit, you can learn about Southwick House and its pivotal role in history here
