June 6 marks the 75th anniversary of the largest combined naval, air and land operation in the history of warfare and the museum will retell the extraordinary land, air and sea story through its World War Two collection and three historic sites, HMS Belfast, IWM Duxford and Churchill War Rooms, which experienced first-hand the events of D-Day.

HMS Belfast led the fleet supporting British and Canadian assaults on Normandy beaches, opening fire at 5.27am on June 6 1944; American fighter aircraft flew from IWM Duxford in support of D-Day operations and Churchill War Rooms was the nerve centre of strategic decision-making during World War Two.

The anniversary will be marked with flight displays, family activities, tours, trails, special events and more and the full schedule will be announced closer to the time.
