Purbeck’s Normandy Veterans to be honoured on Monday 8 September

Our local WWII Normandy veterans are to be honoured and presented with the French Insignia on Monday 8th September at Swanage Railway. Any members of the public wishing to attend should ideally meet the veterans off the train when it returns to Swanage at approximately 16.20 on Monday afternoon, when they will be awarded the French Insignia, which were personally collected from Normandy by Mr Tony Watts.  See Purbeck Gazette website for full details:
