D-Day 80 Exhibition brings to life the dramatic events leading up to D-Day, the part played by the people of South Devon in this historic military operation, and the direct impact of World War II on the normally serene seaside towns of Torbay.

Visitors to the exhibition can see artefacts from World War II, many of them with Torbay connections, from an RAF uniform to an indoor “Morrison Shelter”, an American combat uniform and weapons to a Red Cross nurse’s uniform. There are audio recordings of wartime memories of Torbay, an original Luftwaffe map of Torquay, US military medals, and much more. There is even amazing video footage of American soldiers boarding transport ships in Torquay and Brixham harbours, which has only recently come to light.

The tale of the exhibition is told through large information panels, packed with fascinating stories and photographs, which are rarely seen in public.

This listing is supplied by one of our museum partners and is not moderated by Art Fund.
