Polgwidden Cove
Polgwidden Cove
This peaceful beach below Trebah was the embarkation point on 1 June 1944 for some 7500 men from the 175th Combat Team of the 29th US Infantry Division, bound for Omaha Beach in Normandy, to take part in the D Day landings. The first wave of the assault met heavy resistance and suffered terrible carnage. A memorial in Trebah Gardens commemorates this sacrifice and a commemorative military day is held each year.
