D-Day 75th Anniversary

D-Day 75

In June 1944, British, US and Canadian forces invaded Nazi-occupied France. The invasion marked the beginning of the end for Adolf Hitler’s domination of Europe. Less than a year later, World War Two was over, and the Allies had won.

It is no surprise then that D-Day has earned its place as one of the most significant battles in history.

And this year, we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, one of the most remarkable Allied wartime operations.

Events on the South Coast

With the Captec head office based just outside of Portsmouth, we will be very close to the action, where many displays will take centre stage for D-Day 75 commemorations.

The event will feature entertainment and activities for all the family, including arena displays, military and vintage vehicles, exhibitions, a vintage market, music and dancing from the 1940s and film screenings.

A number of Captec employees will be attending this event, so please keep an eye out for photos on our LinkedIn page over the next few days.

Supporting the Royal British Legion

For this year’s 75th anniversary, we are supporting The Royal British Legion, a charity at the very heart of a national network that provides care and assistance to the Armed Forces community. From expert advice and guidance through to recovery, rehabilitation and transitioning to civilian life, the Legion is by their side every step of the way. And it’s not just members of the Armed Forces but their families too.

To support this fantastic charity, we will publish a post on LinkedIn on Wednesday 5th June. For each LIKE, COMMENT or SHARE we receive on this post, we will donate 50 pence to The Royal British Legion. The total count is capped at a maximum of 500 engagements and excludes Captec employees. We will run the total count on Friday 7th June at 12:00 noon. So please get involved to help us hit our maximum donation!
