D-Day commemorated

A Royal British Legion flag was hoisted above the village War Memorial on June 6 -- the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

William Bowhay, who died on D-Day + 35, was the only serviceman who lived in the village to lose his life in the Second World War.

Arthur Pilditch, who was born at Upton, was a resident of Hope Cove when his ship was blown up off Madagaskar in 1943.
