D-Day WW2 Re-enactment Skegness Video

Skegness travelled back 65 years to witness a re-enactment of the greatest military invasion of the 20th Century – the 6th June, 1944 Second World War D-Day Re-enactment last weekend.

Operation Neptune took place on the Beaches of Skegness on the 19th and 20th September, 2009.
In addition to the amazing displays on the ground, the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight performed a Flypast. This added a wartime feel to the event, as well as creating local interest for Bomber Country.

The Sptifire flew directly over the events area, on the beach off Princes Parade, Skegness.

On Saturday evening the wartime atmosphere was echoed with a 40s Dance Night at the Royal Hotel, South Parade, Skegness. A 7-piece ‘live’ Swing and Jive Band  played music from the 40s.
