The Road to Liberation - 21st February 1941



Good Morning


I hope you are enjoying this weekend, lots of work being done behind the scenes this weekend to get us up and running on the project side of our work. The tours are back on and the next step is to welcome back the volunteers and get cracking on our self-funded WW2 projects:


Maintenance work and restoration at Greve de Lecq Tower

Research and maintenance to protect and understand the German Tunnel Complex Ho19

Continuing research and survey work at German Tunnel Ho5

Continued 3d scanning of the WW2 sites in Jersey and Normandy

+ New project coming soon


As a non-profit organisation, the above is funded by you joining us on tours and seeing behind the scenes of these WW2 projects.


For volunteering at our sites for research and maintenance please contact us so we can come up with a rota and more details for you info@jerseywartours.com
