On June 6, 1944, or D-Day, one of the most ambitious military operations of all time was launched by the Allied Forces with the invasion of Nazi-occupied Western Europe. In the build-up, thousands of bodies gathered in West Sussex. Residents are invited to find out more about these historic times through one of West Sussex Library Services' online resources, or mark the anniversary by attending an exhibition or other event.

West Sussex Record Office in Chichester has already launched its free D-Day display in the waiting and research room, which will be available throughout May and June. Copy of D-Day West Sussex: Trampoline for the Normandy Landings 1944 by Ian Greig, Kim Leslie and Alan Readman will be available to purchase for the reduced price of 5 (regularly 7.95). Copies can be purchased from the Record Office and West Sussex Libraries. Please contact:[email protected]

Recordings of D-Day veterans can be found on the West Sussex Military Voices website Worldwartwoexperience – West Sussex and further information about D-Day and its links to West Sussex is available online at West Sussex County Council: D-Day.

The Library Service also has a memorial website, Remembering Wartime Sussex, https://arena.westsussex.gov.uk/-/remembrance-sussex plus a video with wartime images https://youtu.be/ks5_xfS8O2A?si=8Nz-CWD27-w65Zwh

Cllr Pieter Montyn, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: 80th the anniversary of D-Day is an important occasion and one that I am delighted to see being so well marked across the county.

West Sussex has a fascinating connection with the Normandy landings: did you know that the Bracklesham Bay Hotel hosted Eisenhower, Montgomery and Churchill as they watched the rehearsals for the landings at Bracklesham and Climping? I urge you to go and explore more facts and celebrate this anniversary.

The county council will host the West Sussex Armed Forces Conference in June, where we will be joined by other organizations and charity partners to raise awareness and improve support for the Armed Forces community (serving personnel, reservists, veterans and their families).

The council also supports veterans year-round through the Armed Forces Convention, which provides support to veterans, military reservists and their families. More information about the support on offer can be found on our website at Armed Forces Community Support – West Sussex County Council or by emailing [email protected].

Other local events taking place include:
