75 years ago Emsworth and the surrounding area played a crucial role in the preparations for D-Day and this is being marked with the exhibition "D-Day for Emsworth and its People" in the David Rudkin Room. This display shows some of the Allied forces' remarkable achievements and also demonstrates the impact on life in the local area. Maps, pictures and first-hand accounts by local veterans and residents illustrate the affect the build up to D-Day and the invasion on 6th June 1944 had on the town and its residents. Thousands of troops, their vehicles and equipment were moved into the area and Steve Miller, who curated this exhibition, has investigateded the the vital contribution made by covert operations teams, civilians, local boatyards and specialist workshops and he also uncovered some surprises that were planned for German troops.

The Museum opens Saturdays 10.30am – 4.30pm and Sundays 2.30pm – 4.30pm.
