Normandy

Picking up where I left off yesterday, here are more of the panels on the Normandy campaign of World War Two.


Before heading to the permanent galleries, I headed into the temporary exhibit, Highland Warriors, which continues its run here until January 12th, 2020, if you're in the area and are interested. We'll have a look at more of that tomorrow.
