2nd June 1944 to 5th June 1944
At 1900hrs on June 2nd 2007, it will be 63 years since H.M.S. Ramillies and her crew weighed anchor at Greenock Harbour, and embarked on their voyage through strong gales into the unknown waters of the Normandy beach heads, in preparation for "Operation Over-Lord" or "D-Day" as it is now more commonly known.
June 2nd, out of Greenock, in preparation for the invasions' start on June 5th, however, due to the worsening weather conditions the invasions' start was postponed for 24hours, and so we commenced a 12hour turnaround.
