D-Day 75 years ago

6th June:  Rutland commemorated  the D Day 75th Anniversary with three D Day Rutland veterans: Dennis Wright (pictured with his wife of 65 years), Gerry Wells & John Stokes. It was a great honour to have them join 70+ others in Uppingham Town Hall for a showing of the film ‘The Longest Day’ – the original black and white version.  Gripping stuff. We owe so much!

Thanks to all who joined us;  over £300 was raised, proceeds to the Royal British Legion.
