Join us for a talk with Ingram Murray – Sappers in the D-Day gliders.

Landing in the six gliders with the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry early in the morning of D-Day, 6th June 1944, a platoon of Royal Engineers was the spearpoint of a massive engineer effort to ensure the British forces landing on the beaches could cross the Orne Canal and the River Orne, and then break out towards the east.
