BBC seek volunteers to re-enact D Day on film

The BBC are enlisting an Army of young yachtsmen to re-enact the Normandy Landings of World War II. If you are male, aged 18-24 and fit, then they want to hear from you.

Volunteers will take part in a four week rapid training exercise, based on the training that the D-Day forces undertook 60 years ago. This will be filmed and shown as part of the BBC’s coverage commemorating the D-Day landings.

If selected you will be taken straight to a training camp from 16th February – 14th March for training by the Army the Royal Navy and the Royal Marines. Veterans from the D-Day landings will be on hand to offer advice and recount their own ordeal.

Contact Ben Crichton on 020 87527554 or by Friday 6th Feb for an application form. The deadline for forms to be returned is Wednesday 11th Feb.
