D-Day events in Rutland and Stamford include a screening of The Longest Day and laying of wreaths
The 75th anniversary of D-Day was given a fitting commemoration by people who lived and served in this area.
Three D-Day veterans were guests of honour at a special screening of the film The Longest Day at Uppingham Town Hall on Thursday last week, which was also attended by 70 people including the Lord Leiutenant of Rutland, Dr Sarah Furness, who helped organise the event, and Coun Stephen Rozak, deputy mayor of Uppingham.
Dr Sarah Furness, said: “It was a really wonderful evening. We were honoured to be joined by three veterans from Rutland and it was a really moving evening. In fact, they were really proud and pleased to be honoured.”
