A pair of Second World War veterans took a trip down memory lane as they returned to the Normandy beaches they first landed on during D-Day more than 70 years ago.

Stradbroke and District Royal British Legion president Ted Bootle and member Alan King, who both landed on Sword Beach on June 6, travelled on a five-day trip to the French region along with family members, courtesy of a sponsorship initiative funded the ‘Libor Fines’.
