It was seventy-eight years ago that the liberation of Europe began with Operation Overlord and the Normandy landings on the 6th June 1944.
In the depths of the Nothe Fort in Weymouth (as well as a civillian nuclear bunker (now abandoned)) there is a really beautiful 54mm scale model of the D-Day landings. Lots of different models in there including an Horsa glider.
It is a representative model and does not reflect an actual beachhead.
More photographs of the evocative 54mm scale D-Day model at the Nothe Fort in Weymouth.
