"OVERLORD" was the codename for the allied landing in Normandy in WW2. (The much better known name "D-DAY" means only the date). The OVERLORD SHOW commemorates the the gathering and embarking of allied troops in this region in May 1944.
Since 2005 the OVERLORD SHOW is organized by the SOLENT OVERLORD EXECUTIVE . After some internal trouble, they have separated from the MVT.
This year during the OVERLORD SHOW I've visited the Royal Armouries at FORT NELSON near Portsmouth. FORT NELSON was part of a chain of strong fortifications, which were built in the 1860s to defend Portsmouth harbour against a French invasion. After the victory of the Prussian army over the French in 1870 at Sedan, the threat of a French invasion has vanished.
FORT NELSON is really worth a visit. For details please contact www.royalarmouries.org/visit-us/fort-nelson. Admission is FREE!
