Pegasus Memorial reviews
Very moving, very interesting, very tastefully done. This is intimate but informative nod to everyone involved in operation 'deadstick'. All of us loved our visit to this museum a must visit for... more »
Beautifull museum with lots of things on display, like parts of a wooden glider-plane and the original bridge. The importance of the Pegaus bridge is well explained. Worth a visit! more »
Stunningly detailed and sympathetically presented. There is an entry fee but it's well worth the cost. A small cinema sets the scene with a short film showing archive material. Excellent displays inside and fascinating objects outside, including the original Pegasus Bridge, artillery and even a glider. Afterwards, its worth the very short walk to the current bridge which spans the beautiful river and is designed as a replica of the original. Helpful, friendly staff create a relaxed, unhurried atmosphere.
Memorial of our Parachute Regiment colleagues,friends and Family to be just a very small part of that is very VERY humble when you just try and think what they faced when they left England and landed right next to the bridge then they had to fight for their lives and capture the Pegasus bridge against all odds without favour or respect from the German forces That is what we need to tell our children of today and educate them in the Schools, All Schools in the United Kingdom. As if it was not for our armed forces during the conflicts of TWO World Wars there would be NO British Kingdom to talk about in fact you would not have Freedom of Speech or even Freedom.
