List of D-Day commemoration events taking place in Aylesbury Vale for 80th anniversary

A number of events have been planned by parish councils and local organisations in Aylesbury Vale to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

On June 6 1944, the Allied Forces famously triumphed over the Nazis in a battle at Normandy beach. It proved to be one of the pivotal events in the Second World War and remains the largest seaborne invasion in history.

A number of ceremonies and presentations will be held in Buckinghamshire to mark the occasion.

Here are some of the events happening in and around Aylesbury on Thursday (6 June):
