Queen and Donald Trump to see Second World War amphibious lorry from Glinton at D-Day 75th anniversary celebration in Portsmouth




A restored Second World War amphibious vehicle took part in this week’s D-Day 75th anniversary celebrations in Portsmouth.

Graham Smitheringale has spent almost two years restoring the craft at Howe Farm, west of Glinton, before it was transported south for the festivities attended by the Queen and US President Donald Trump.

Graham, a 51-year-old farmer, described the six-wheeled DUKW as a “lorry that swims” and the “backbone of Normandy.”
