D-Day Questions Answered on the Big Screen

Last week the Big Screen Portsmouth added a new video that answers some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about D-Day.

The video shows members of staff from the D-Day Museum answering popular questions including: 'What does the D in D-Day stand for?', 'What was Operation Neptune?' and 'Why did D-Day happen?' Portsmouth played a key role in the Normandy Landings, with locations all over the city enabling the success of the operation, with headquarters for planning the invasion or the loading of troops, troops waiting in the streets, and men boarding transport to Normandy from South Parade Pier and Portsmouth Harbour. The museum is currently undergoing a huge transformation enabled by a generous award from the  Heritage Lottery Fund, and this video will help to answer important questions prior to our repoening. 

The video can be seen playing on the Big Screen Portsmouth, in the Guildhall Square. Watch out for our experts and learn more about D-Day!
