Event Details

D-Day 1944: Wartime Lisburn and the Battle for Normandy.

D-Day, or the Normandy landings, saw the launch of Operation Overlord – the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France on 6 June 1944. It was the greatest land, sea, and air operation in history and was crucial to ending the Second World War in Europe.

The museum’s new exhibition marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day and highlights the local connections to the Battle for Normandy, as well as life in wartime Lisburn. For the first time, the museum is displaying the uniform of CSM William J. McCutcheon who glided into France by air. Come and learn about the invasion, Lisburn and the Second World War, and stories of local men who fought on D-Day.
