A VETERANS’ parade has taken place through Southsea to mark 70 years since the D-Day invasion.
The parade ran from the D-Day Memorial Stone along the seafront, past the D-Day museum and the statue of Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery to Southsea Common.
People lined the streets to watch the parade, which was led by a pipe band.
Robert Johnson, 83, travelled to Portsmouth from Lispurn in Northern Ireland with his wife Elizabeth.
He said: ‘It’s been very good. We have friends in the services ourselves. So we thought we would come and pay our respects.
‘I’m old enough to remember the outbreak of war.
‘So I wanted to be here to remember everything. It brings it all back.’
