75th Anniversary of D-Day Exhibition at Portsmouth Museum [Portsmouth]

Twelve portraits of D-Day Veterans, commissioned by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, are on loan to Portsmouth Museum as part of their programme to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day. The 12 veterans, shown wearing their medals, all served in regiments with which TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have a formal association. The D-Day portraits were created by twelve different artists, all of whom studied at the Royal Drawing School, one of His Royal Highness's Charities. The portraits are shown alongside archival material, objects and paintings to convey the profound effect D-Day had on the city and its people, and pay tribute to the remarkable men who were involved. 

The exhibition is on display until 1 September 2019.
