On Saturday the 30th September 2017 the Spirit of Normandy Trust and Return to Normandy will be holding the Annual Normandy Veterans Reunion at Castle Field Southsea, between 10am and 5pm. It is hoped that up to 100 D-Day and Normandy Veterans will attend with their families, members of the public are also welcome to event. As part of the day we would like to incorporate as many WW2 Themed displays and Stands as possible, especially Vehicles and Re-Enactors. Anyone displaying a vehicle or attending as a re-enactor will be presented with a special commemorative coin and provided lunch, in addition a trophy will be presented for the best vehicle. We would also like to hear from any relevant organisation or persons that would like a stand. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or send me a PM Mark
Good afternoon to you all I have been advised by a current member of HMVF (Tony Pearson) that it would be a good idea to join the forum and introduce myself. My name is Andy Sutherland and we have recently bought a house in Normandy. Some of you may know it already, Ivy House situated directly behind Utah Beach. Ivy House is only five minutes walk from Utah Beach and we offer self catering accommodation and bed & breakfast accommodation. We bought the house and business from Steve and Sarah Lee in September 2010. I am English and I am married to a French woman. We have three (almost four) children and we decided to up sticks and live in Normandy. My wife found it hard to settle in England and I promised her that we would move back to France one day. That day came and now we find ourselves in Normandy. I am not a reenactor or military vehicle owner; however, I am very much interested in the history of the war. I am in awe of the work and commitment that re-enactors and vehicle owners put in and we would love to welcome you to our new home. Whilst this may sound like a cheap plug for our business, we see it slightly different. We want to do our bit to keep the memory alive of what happened in this area all those years ago. That is why we actively encourage people from this scene to visit our home. We would like to offer any re-enactors or vehicle owners a 10% discount on our prices. I would also like to share a few beers and listen to your stories! If you would like to stay at our new home, then please do not hesitate in contacting us. We look forward to welcoming you to our home. Regards, Andy and Emma Sutherland http://www.utahbeachnormandy.com
