Overlord Embroidery

Sometimes also known as the Overlord Tapestry, the Overlord Embroidery is a series of embroidered panels commemorating the Allied D-Day invasion of France in June 1944. Lord Dulverton of Batsford (Frederick Wills, 1915-1992), inspired by the Bayeux tapestry, commissioned the embroidery in 1968. Sandra Lawrence created the design.
