The Military Wives choir are to sing this afternoon at a memorial service marking events leading up to the 70th anniversary of Exercise Tiger. The wartime exercise on the South Devon coast left hundreds of US servicemen dead when their landing ships were attacked by German E-boats.
The service starts at 2.30pm in a marquee at Torcross with a parade of regimental standards. US veterans will take part in a wreath-laying ceremony attended by American diplomats and local people who were affected.
