Hundreds of people gathered in Phear Park on Sunday to pay their respects to the fallen on the seventieth anniversary of D-Day.

The mayor and deputy mayor, representatives from the armed services and charities, veterans, members of the public and cadets gathered on the site which was home to US troops in the weeks before the Normandy Landings. See this week’s Exmouth Journal for a Picture Special.
