Click the pictures to see how a soldier dad showed love for his daughter. When John Jenkins was in France in the Second World War he drew pictures to send to his daughter back home.

He didn't think much of some of the places he had to stay in, but made the pictures funny and lighthearted for her.

Had the privileged of returning to this Museum on 3/12/2019, after the refit and refurb. Oh boy! What a difference. A completely fresh and engaging museum, telling the compelling story of the D-Day landings. What a difference to 3 years ago. I would recommend this to all as a brilliant day out.
Remembering D-Day today. Dad was a Radar operator in the RAF, and part of the Combined Operations force. He worked on one of the three radar ships which were stationed off the American landing beaches and they also carried US troops to the beach head. I read again his reminiscences of the days and hours leading up to the 'big event'. I think that they are worth sharing: "We sailed in a convoy leaving at 16.00. We sailed past Hell Fire Corner at about midnight (this is what the Straits of Dover were called during the war), eventually reaching and anchoring off Cowes at tea time. It was from here we did more exercises before returning on June 3rd when the ship was sealed – that meant that no one was allowed on or off the ship. I forgot to mention that we took on board some 100 American Troops and Officers plus the American War Correspondent of ‘The American Readers Digest’, a certain Frederick C. Patten. It was obvious from the hundreds of ships of all kinds and sizes surrounding us that something big was about to happen and quite soon. On 4th June 1944 watches were made up for 24 hour shifts, maps were issued for our plotting boards – ours was somewhere east of Cherbourg. The weather declined very badly and a near gale was blowing, but we survived, leaving anchor that day. On Monday 5th June the whole of the ships personnel assembled to hear our RN Skipper read to all of us a special letter from General Eisenhower about the great sea invasion we were about to take part in to liberate Europe. We eventually sailed about 13.00 hours, surrounded by an enormous armada of assault crafts of all sizes, destroyers, frigates and battleships. It was a wonderful spectacle. We rendez-voused at Piccadilly Circus, which was a point in mid-Channel, south of the Isle of Wight, when we were joined by ships from the east and from the west. We manned up the Operations Room at 04.00 whilst we were still sailing towards the French coast. At 07.15, after arriving off the American Beachhead, we said farewell to the American soldiers we had aboard. To this day, I often wonder how many of them ever got back home, because the Americans really ran into serious problems, and their casualties were enormous. We pulled back from the coast to enable our Radar gear to function properly. We remained off Normandy until the beginning of July. We engaged enemy aircraft with our night fighters on many occasions – quite successfully too. I forget the number of planes shot down by fighters being controlled by us, but I know it reached double figures. All three FTDs had many successes, so much so that one night six JU80s attacked each of our three ships with torpedoes. Fortunately for all of us being so shallow drafted, we survived with the torpedoes literally passing under our ships. Unfortunately, FTD 216 hit a mine one night and sank. Fortunately, there were very few fatal casualties. She did sink, but most survived". Sadly, Dad died a few years ago and could not share in today's memorial events. I wish he could have joined those proud veterans still alive. ❤️😢👏🙏🇬🇧🇺🇸🇫🇷
Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, Dan Sharp, author of D-Day Overlord: The Great Invasion and The Battle for Normandy – 75th Anniversary, outlines five things you probably didn’t know about the D-Day landings.
Logbook from Hinshelwoods logbook who was a rear gunner on Halifax aircraft on the night before and on D-Day and went on to complete 37 tours
Just to let you know about the Pegasus Bridge Memorial Flight at the National Memorial Arboretum well ahead of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day 6th June 1944.
Congratulations on your nomination for European Museum of the Year, but why isn`t it posted on this page?
Hope this is ok to post here - please delete if not appropriate. I would like to offer a great opportunity for someone/company to sponsor two major galleries/exhibitions involving many WWII Veterans from this page - very flexible and open to offers - great publicity in Scotland & England. Get in touch if interested - thank you.
