Veterans remember D-day for perhaps the last time

Six veterans came in unity today to mark the anniversary of D-Day - on what could be a final farewell to friends who fought alongside them in the Normandy landings.

With many veterans growing frail - the South Devon branch of the Normandy Veterans Association - say their numbers have dwindled so much, they might never meet again.

The ceremony took place at Beacon Quay in Torquay - next to the slipways where in 1944 British troops embarked to take part in the Normandy Landings, not knowing if they would return.
