Dedication of a D-Day Memorial

This morning a good number of people attended the dedication of a new memorial in Broadmayne.

The dedication was organised by “Local History Broadmayne”





The memorial is to the American Soldiers who were stationed in Broadmayne and West Knighton in the build-up to D-Day.

The memorial was installed by Steve George of the Castletown D-Day Centre on Portland and is by the junction of Chalky and Cowleaze roads



David Eaglestone gave a talk on the historical background and Rev Anthony Bush led a dedication service
