RNAS hosts two veterans and the Chairman of the Spirit of Normandy Trust at Southwick House the Allied Headquarters for the D Day Landings

RNAS 1710 recently hosted two veterans and the Chairman of the Spirit of Normandy Trust at Southwick House the Allied Headquarters for the D Day Landings.  Patrick Thomas and Wally Beall were able to visit the famous map room where the D Day map wall still portrays the situation at H Hour on D Day.  They were both looked after very well my the Royal Navy and the Royal Military Police, who are now based at Southwick Park.  Richard Palusinski, Chairman, gave a brief talk on the work and purposes of the Spirit of Normandy Trust.  Both Wally and Patrick served on landing crafts in the Royal Navy on D Day.  They were fascinated to see the map wall, which neither of them had seen before, commenting “so this is what sent us to Normandy!”.
