22-24 June 2012 Armour & Embarkation is an ‘experience’ to commemorate the 68th anniversary of the build of D-Day here in Dorset England.
Without doubt it is going to be the event of 2012 as it will be the first time ever that such a number of original WWII tanks will have been assembled in Dorset since the end of the war – up to twenty tanks and over fifty WWII vehicles. They will be driving into Dorchester town exactly as they did on the build up of D-Day. Dorset was one of the major marshalling areas and embarkation counties. Dorset played a major part in the build up, the execution of D-Day and the liberation Nazi occupied Europe.
The first took place in 2010 and there is a great picture thread over on the Historic Military Vehicle Forum HMVF – its 22 pages long or you can go to the last page where some more pictures have been upload – click here
The new Armour and Embarkation website will be live tomorrow – Friday 20th.
