Devon D day celebrations in Saunton Jun 2019

  Posted June 17, 2019

Despite high winds and a constant downpour, Colin and his enthusiastic assistant, Lydia ventured down to the Devon coastline to join in the D Day celebrations in Saunton. Saunton Beach is famous for being used as a training ground by the Americans for the planned landings in France and enactors took the opportunity of setting the scene when they landed in Omaha with the German Army putting up as much resistance as possible.  Light aircraft including Lysanders joined in with the weekend show landing on the beach and giving spectators the opportunity of seeing these aircraft close up however, the weather on Sunday turned for the worse therefore, the aircraft were not able to land due to the high wind and extremely wet weather.

A high number of Veterans attending the event took the opportunity of talking to both Colin and Lydia on what UKVHH can access to ensure a much higher quality of life and it was not uncommon for Veterans to say that they were so glad they came to the event as they were not aware of how their hearing could be helped in such a professional manner.  Additionally the opportunity of working with The Veterans Charity who care for those suffering from PTSD as well as a hearing loss was made thereby increasing the footprint on offering the much needed facility throughout the UK.

Although a wet and windy weekend, both Colin and Lydia enjoyed the event and the ability to give Veterans that much needed support really made it all worthwhile.  We will be back next year with the hope that the weather improves.
