Can you help with a D-Day remembrance project?
Posted on: 26 April 2019
Could you spare a few hours to help commemorate thousands of American GIs who gave so much 75 years ago?
We’re looking for young men between 18 and 30 to work with Multi Story Theatre Company on a simple act of remembrance.
You will be present in various locations on the North Devon coast dressed as GIs. In groups of about half a dozen, you will be a ghostly presence on the beach or in a seaside town.
During each 30 minute stopover you will rouse the curiosity of passers-by. You won’t interact other than, maybe, to pass them a card with brief details of a GI who trained here in North Devon before moving on to the beaches of Normandy. Passers-by can hear more details from recordings of extracts from letters.
You will be provided with a uniform and travel in an ex-US Army jeep.
The event takes place over a number of weekends in May but you are not expected to be there for every event, just for a few hours.Leisure
