Lance Corporal Lindsay
In 2011 I enlisted the help of WWII re-enactors to help run a Heritage Open Day at the Jacobean house I was curator of. Without their support, we would never have coped with the 8,000 visitors we received in a day. Their professional approach that included education, entertainment and fun inspired me to join their ranks. It has been a fantastic source of friendships, information, refreshments (NAAFI vans are as fabulous now as they were then) and inspiration.
Meeting veterans and their descendants is an honour as is keeping what they did for us in the forefront of everyone's memory.
