On the return journey from our Family holiday in Devon I took a 'slight' detour via Portsmouth and the D-Day Museum. I've been here before but this was my wife's first visit and her first chance to see the impressive Overlord Embroidery. The museum has some very interesting items on display but the embroidery really is quite spectacular and worthwhile seeing just for itself.

This is a great museum and well worth a visit if you are in the area.
