Bracknell Forest Council are promoting a series of special remembrance events and are encouraging residents from across the town to get involved. 

This year marks 80 years since the D-Day landings and every year on June 6 we remember the service and sacrifice of those who served in the Second World War.

D-Day was the largest seaborne invasion in history, marking the beginning of the liberation of France and Western Europe.

The battalion consisted of troops from a number of countries which included Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.

At the time, France was occupied by the armies of Nazi Germany. By the end of the day, nearly 156,000 allied soldiers had landed on the beaches.

There are lots of different celebrations happening across Bracknell Forest, and below is a list of the different places you can go to locally.
