Research at the D-Day Story  

We do hold some material in our archives that may be useful. For example, we may have a published or unpublished history of a unit, the memoirs of another veteran who served in the same unit, or photographs of a relevant unit or place.

We also hold material such as maps that may be useful in understanding a soldier’s service in Normandy, for example.

We also have a large library of books relating to D-Day. This material can be consulted by the public, by prior appointment.
