D-Day 75 - Harwell
Updated: Dec 12, 2019
On 5th June, Rob Ponsford and Steve Wright attended an event organised by the Campus to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Harwell's involvement in the Normandy Invasion. Rob was kept busy at the Society stand and Steve joined local historian Don Summers to talk about D-Day and Harwell's role. To mark the Society's thanks for being asked to take part Rob & Steve presented a framed photo of 'A' Squadron (which was based at Harwell) to Campus representative Fiona Smart. The event concluded with a vigil at the Harwell Stone.
On the 8th Society members gathered at the Harwell Stone for the annual Service of Remembrance and Commemoration.
