76th Anniversary of D-Day (D-Day 76)

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in light of the risks posed, The Royal British Legion has taken the difficult decision not to continue with planned events in Bayeux to commemorate the 76th anniversary of D-Day.

The cancellation of the events is deeply disappointing but has been taken, based on expert advice, to protect the health of all those who would have been travelling or attending the commemorations.

The Royal British Legion are continuing to identify ways that we can still commemorate the anniversary of D-Day on Saturday 6 June 2020.

Should the conditions change significantly, The Royal British Legion will, in conjunction with the Embassy in Paris, CWGC and relevant Local French authorities, re-evaluate the situation.

Details will be updated through Legion channels when confirmed.
