Key to the success of Southsea’s ‘D-Day Story’ is its focus on people. At the museum, time and again, you are brought from the big strategic picture – though that’s also fully there – to human stories. Most often, of the kind of people you might well meet at any time even today, in a coffee shop, on a train, or at work. This, says museum chief Ross Fairbrother (picture), is at the heart of what ‘D-Day Story’ does. And it’s right there on board LCT 7074, too: from a multi-faceted audio-visual display covering all aspects of the ship and her life, to voices of sailors chaffing each other, to a precious picture of his wife in 7074’s first Captain’s tiny cabin. You’re right there with these people, and they with you; reminders of what we owe this great generation.
