Amble D-Day Event

A blustery wind did not deter the crowds from turning out at Amble’s memorials to show their respect and gratitude to all those who took part in the D-Day landings of 80 years ago. Coquet Churches Together conducted a commemorative service which included the laying of wreaths. Those laid by Members of Amble Town Council on behalf of all the people were followed by individual tributes. It was especially fitting that Mr William (Bill) Wake, Royal Navy number PMX 535514 and his rank was Sick Berth Attendant present at D-Day was able to attend and lay a wreath on behalf of all veterans.

Following the service, drama, music and singing led the celebrations marking the vital contribution made by D-Day to bring about the end of World War Two. Northumberland Theatre Company, Boulmer Wives Military Choir, Bearpark and Esh Colliery Band, Alnwick and Morpeth All Stars and Amble’s own Harbour Lights were all enthusiastically received by the crowds.

Heartfelt thanks to all who worked so hard before and during the event to make it a fitting tribute to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.
