GOODWOOD REVIVAL 2019 D-Day Tribute Parade
In a serious departure from the norm, the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex was awash with khaki earlier this September in a very special D-Day commemoration parade.
The South Hampshire Military Vehicle Trust amongst others supplied more than 90 historic vehicles, many of which were instrumental in Operation Overlord and the wider World War II effort, took to the Circuit, making up what was possibly the largest, and slowest grid it’s ever seen.
From amphibians to American airdrop motorcycles, the parade had everything, including a Corbett Heavy Wrecker towing a Sherman tank and the only working Ford Lynx in Britain. Waving from the open cabs and tank turrets were soldiers and land girls, dressed to the nines in period costumes.
