Thanks to Andy Kyle and Derek
Guy for these fascinating early morning misty photos of the
Remembrance Ceremony at Slapton
A ceremony was held on Sunday to
commemorate the 66th anniversary of Exercise Tiger at the
Sherman Tank memorial Torcross.
In late 1943, as part of the war
effort, the British Government evacuated approximately 3,000
local residents. Some of them had never left their villages
before. The make up of Slapton Beach was selected for
its similarity to Utah Beach, namely a gravel beach,
followed by a strip of land and then a lake.
During the practice for the Normandy Landings in April 1944,
638 servicemen were killed when 30000 allied troops were
attacked by German E-Boats in Start Bay.
Wreaths were laid by a number of
military organisations including the USA, and by Councillor
Melvyn Stone Chairman of South Hams District Council.
After the ceremony there was a service in Stokenham Church.
