People with war time memories to share will be able to add them to the archive when Norfolk Tank Museum holds a special 75th anniversary commemoration of D-Day.
The museum at Forncett St Peter has produced a special short documentary focusing on the stories of Norfolk veterans and their experiences on D-Day, both at home and on the beaches.
And as part of its D-Day commemoration event on June 9 it will have a videographer present to record memories from people would like to share for the archive.
The event will also feature re-enactors and military historians keen to talk about the conflict, answer questions and chat about memories and any artifacts people bring along.
Visitors will also be able to find out how D-Day was reported back home with an exhibition of original D-Day press photographs from the landings and from the deception campaign Operation Bodyguard which preceded it.
