I truly enjoyed visiting The Bedford Boys Tribute Center. I have lived in Bedford all my life but I learned a lot of things that I didn’t know. Linda Parker was very knowledgeable and well informed.

The Tribute Centre complements the National D Day Museum with a personal insight into the Boys lives and families and aftermath of the Landings. Centre is Adult focused, allow an hour and stop for coffee.

If you visit the D-Dat Memorial you must add this to your visit to Bedford. Linda and Ken are most knowledgeable and dedicated to telling the real stories of the Bedford Boys and their families.
