496 The Hardway Memorial

This monuments was erected at the 70th Anniversary of D-Day in 2014. It is at the Hardway in Gosport, commemorating the departure of some of the thousands of men to Normandy.

It’s just over a mile from us, and to get to it I have to pass a number of historically very important areas in the town. Clarence Yard was the centre for the re supply of ships with food, St Georges Barracks accommodated marines for the defence of the town. Nowadays these have been converted in to some very nice flats, their original purpose now moving into the annals of history.

The Explosion Museum is open, and it is possible to walk through the centre which is open, there are some of the many exhibits on display, exposed to the elements. Like the other museums in the town, it is well worth a visit.

At the hard itself, apart from the memorial, there is nothing obvious to me to indicate that the area played a role in one of the most significant events of the twentieth Century.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
