Police have begun an investigation after swastikas were spray painted on a commemorative D-Day bench in Lincolnshire.
A number of areas in Twyford Woods were targeted between Sunday and Monday, including a wall and a disused fuel drum.
During the Second World War, the site was used as an airfield for aircraft to take off for Normandy ahead of D-Day.
Last week, the Queen paid tribute to the "heroism" of troops, marking 75 years since the Normandy landings that changed the course of the conflict.
Special events took place throughout the day to mark the historic military offensive, including a flypast by the Red Arrows in Portsmouth.
Following the attacks in Lincolnshire, police urged anyone with information to come forward.
