Have you ever thought about what the D-Day soldiers wore and how it helped them in battle? Join Jon Stone, Senior Study Programme Manager Military and Protective Services for the Cornwall College Group, at this D-Day drop in! Jon will be showcasing examples of British and American uniform and equipment used during the D-Day landings, including replica weapons. Also on display will be a more modern British uniform, worn in Afghanistan, to show how technology has developed and a comparison of the body armour. This is an opportunity to handle the uniforms and equipment, including a stuntman’s jacket worn in the blockbuster ‘Saving Private Ryan’!
