The RLC’s founding Corps played a crucial role in D-Day in 1944 and on the 75th anniversary the Corps is still front and centre.

In order to help mark the commemoration, 13 Air Assault Support Regiment took part in Motorcycle racer turned TV presenter, Guy Martin’s D-Day Landing on Channel 4.

The programme took a look at the brave endeavours of those who served before us 75 years ago.
