VETERANS marched through Southsea yesterday to mark the 67th anniversary of the D-Day Landings.
A group of more than 60 people, including 20 Normandy veterans, proudly marched from Canoe Lake to the D-Day Memorial Stone near South Parade Pier.
A service then took place, led by Father Bob White of St Mary’s Church in Fratton.
Wreathes were laid by a representative of the veterans and Councillor Frank Jonas, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Portsmouth.
Members of the public were invited to pin crosses on the D-Day Memorial.
Arthur Nelson, chairman of Portsmouth South British Legion, was among those attending.
He said: ‘It went very well.
‘A lot of the veterans are well into their 80s and 90s now, but it’s something we have got to try to keep on going.’
