Hucknall military historian and district councillor Jim Grundy travelled to France with a special companion for the 70th anniversary commemoration of D-Day.

Mr Grundy accompanied his partner’s father, Don Reynolds, who was serving with the Royal Navy at the time of the Normandy Landings.

Mr Reynolds served aboard the destroyer HMS Virago on D-Day. He served a 4.7in gun bombarding Sword Beach, one of the beaches where British troops landed.
