A charity is calling on descendants of local soldiers who took part in D-Day to saddle up for a trip down memory lane.
Relatives of members of the British Army’s Lincolnshire Regiment, and others that participated in the landmark invasion, are being invited to follow the footsteps of their heroic ancestors for a unique cycling event.
The trip is tracking an allied soldier’s journey from Portsmouth to Normandy, including Sword Beach where the regiment landed for the Allied assault on German-occupied France.
