Planning a rally is no mean feat – there are campsites, ferries and excursions to arrange, often for up to 50 people. This year Alan Rogers lent a helping hand to the Bailey Owners’ Caravan Club, who organised a four week rally in France to celebrate the 70th anniversary of D-Day.We invite Les Payne to give us the details.
This stage of the rally was a time to reminisce and remember the sacrifices made by all the young men on the beaches of Normandy. It was a very emotional time with visits to the beaches, graves, memorials and many excellent museums. Our site, Camping Château Martragny, was as expected, taken over for the occasion by army vehicles and military uniforms. Our group was allocated a rally field which allowed us to have fun with themed soirees, 40s quizzes and socialising.
