The search to identify the Regiments of Canadians who camped around the village in the 1944 build-up to D-Day continues.

Information recently discovered suggests that the men could have been from the 1st Battalion Queens Own Rifles.

Do you have any knowledge about these troops or their movements in the weeks before D-Day? If so, please email:   heritage@buriton.org.uk
