Impressions of an 18yr old at Normandy 1944. At the start of the war aged 15 John was a fire watcher at the company that he worked for in Manchester. Armed with a bucket of sand and a bucket of water his job was to put out fires caused by German incendiaries.He was on the roof when the Blitz of Manchester began. Aged 17 he joined Royal navy earning the rank of Able Seaman Radar Plotter Second Class. As part of the D Day landings he kept a diary which forms a booklet about his war time career. Aged 90 the French government awarded him their highest honour Legion d'Honneur.

COMMEMORATIVE BENCHES

Regular visitors to our event will recall we ran a number of fund raising initiatives to raise funds to purchase a bench to go in the town's Memorial Garden to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. We are pleased to say that with all the fund raising and the support of Tesco's Bags of Help scheme we were able not to only buy the bench but also a second one to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War 2.

The benches now take pride of place in the Memorial Garden, Howell Drive Welshpool.
