D- Day at SBSC

Thursday 06 June was a busy day for SBSC. As our building was the Loading Control Centre for the D-Day operations, we were asked to host 2 events.

The first was with the Gosport D-Day Fellowship, for their Memorial Dedication Service, where there was a parade from the club to the dedication service on the site of the future memorial, then a return to the club for a reception. 

In the evening, we held a commemorative evening with live music from Debbie C, Ration Pie from the galley, a brass band playing right outside the club together with the beacon lighting.    We hosted dignitaries in the club before and after the Beacon Lighting ceremony.  This was filmed by local TV you can watch via this link;  https://x.com/TTVSolent/status/1799161457566969945
