This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Landings, on 6 June 1944, also known as D-Day. A series of major commemorations is planned to mark this historic occasion, with events planned in the UK and at various locations along the Normandy coast.

The Ministry of Defence is working closely with partners across government and with external agencies to deliver a fitting programme of commemorations for veterans and their families to mark the anniversary. These include the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, The Royal British Legion, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and veterans’ groups.
