    Portsmouth City Council: D-Day 75 Commemorative Events

    Portsmouth

    Vehicles wanted:
    The 6 June 2019 will mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy and we at Portsmouth City Council are proud that Portsmouth will be at the heart of the UK's commemorations. We will be honouring the courageous actions of the Normandy veterans, World War II veterans and our allies with a series of events between Wednesday 5 June and Sunday 9 June 2019.
    As part of those commemorations I would like to ask on behalf of Portsmouth City Council if the Invicta Military Vehicle Preservation Society and its members would be interested in getting involved by displaying some of its members' period vehicles on Southsea Common over Friday 7 June through to Sunday 9 June for public view.  We are keen for them to form a centrepiece on Southsea Common and accompany, among other things, a vintage fair, food stalls and live performance stage.
    We would greatly value the fact that a display of military vehicles, accompanied by some of their owners (no doubt with some interesting stories of their own to tell about them), will add colour and interest to the commemorations for all those attending.
    At this stage, we would be grateful for expressions of interest from members.  Amy Tilt (Events and Sponsorship Manager) or Daniel Watts, (Events Team) can be contacted on the emails below.  We look forward to hearing from you.
