War Memorial #755 - D-Day 75 - Hardway, Gosport
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This virtual has been set as part of the Virtual Rewards 2.0 series, a limited release of 4000 caches worldwide.
The timing of the release of these rewards has coincided nicely with the WW2 D Day 75 anniversary for the Operation Overlord celebration and remembrance ceremonies that are taking place around Europe and beyond.
My home town of Gosport played a major part in this event and Hardway was one of the main embarkation points where 1000’s of service personnel departed for the Normandy beaches, many never to return, so I feel this is a poignant and timely way to show my respect to those that fought and those that fell in order that we might live in freedom today.
