Town’s D-Day role revealed

FACTS about the role of Bognor Regis in the D-Day landings will be highlighted.

Local historian Sylvia Endacott will speak about the town’s airfield which helped to launch the planes used in the invasion of Europe.

She will be talking about the short, but busy, life of the site at 8pm on April 28 at the Royal British Legion club in Hewarts Lane, Aldwick.

Located at Chalcraft Lane, the advanced landing ground hosted Norwegian airmen as well as the RAF. Her talk is part of the build-up to an anniversary commemoration event of the landings.
