Remembrance Day 2019
We made special boats for an exhibition at the National Memorial Arboretum to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Our painted boats will make up part of a special tribute to the almost 7000 vessels and 156,000 troops who sailed to the beaches of Normandy on 6th June 1944. We decorated our boats with poppies and camouflage designs. At the Arboretum they will be added to the other boats in the exhibition to make a total of 6939 wooden vessels - 1 for each of the ships which sailed that day.
