Nottingham commemorated the 60th anniversary of the D-Day Landings with a parade and drum-head service in the Old Market Square and a civic reception at Nottingham’s Council House.

The ceremony, on Sunday June 13 at 3pm, is one week later than the date of the Allied invasion on June 6, 1944, so that veterans and their families could travel to France for European commemorations and also join in the City’s observance.

Veterans from the Allied Invasion lead a march past and a representative of the Notts branch of the Normandy Veterans laid a wreath.

The service was conducted by the Royal British Legion County Chaplain, Rev. Bryan Barrowdale, and the Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Councillor John Hartshorne, read the lesson.
