Commemorating D-Day…2020

The Weymouth Military Weekend has been cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, along with most of the usual annual D-Day commemoration ceremonies across the UK and a much reduced attendance at the Normandy beaches. To keep the memory alive we broadcast again an edition of Ridgeway Magazine from 2019 which commemorated the 75th annisversay of D-Day when John Shepherd visited the Normandy landings grounds in the company of historian Andrew Roberts and Lord Dannat, former chief of the Army General Staff. We also heard about the heroic role of the Dorset Regiment and an example of a piece of D-Day history dug up in a field near Dorchester.
