BMMHS Visit to D-Day Museum in Portsmouth 23rd May 2019. The first trip organised by BMMHS.​

Yesterday saw the first trip organised by BMMHS. An excellent day out to the DDay museum at Portsmouth just a few days before the 75th anniversary. Much improved and modernised museum with plenty to see and learn about. Gave a real perspective on the scale of the challenge , and the bravery of so many men and woman. 
Great place to go for adults and children. Also enough time to stroll along the front in glorious sunshine to see the impressive Naval Memorial and to see the plaque to the Cockleshell Heroes.
Many thanks to Nigel and Linda for organising the day and to Phil for doing the driving.
