Brigg will soon be marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in northern France during June 1944 - vital to the Allies finally defeating Germany in the Second World War the following year.
A D-Day Afternoon will take place at the Britannia Inn, Wrawby Street, on Thursday, June 6, 2019, starting from noon and continuing well into the afternoon.
Typical war-time fare will be on the menu, together with 1940s music.
Among delicacies on offer will be corned beef hash and Spam meat sandwiches, apple crumble and custard - though the latter won't be made with powdered egg!
"All welcome," say the organisers. So make a note of the date and pop along. There's no need to book in advance.
We gather the food will be free and off-ration, as they used to say during the war.

Landlord Shane Garrett has some printed flyers behind the bar if you want to collect a printed reminder about this event, which is expected to draw a sizeable crowd.
Brigg Blog has suggested that Branston Pickle goes well with Spam sandwiches!For the benefit of Brigg Blog's younger viewers, Spam was a staple of the British diet during Second World War rationing.
Pork meat was cooked and put into cans by a company in the USA.
Many people developed a taste for it so Spam remained in the shops after hostilities drew to a close and rationing was removed, being made in the UK - under a licensing agreement.
Indeed, Spam is still on the market today and can be enjoyed hot or cold.
Servicemen from Brigg and district took part in the D-Day operations, which saw troops and vehicles continuing to land in France for some time after June 6.
Fuel was carried across the Channel by PLUTO - Pipeline Under The Ocean - in which a construction company based on Brigg Road, Scunthorpe, played a key role.
It was a top secret innovation, and Prime Minister Winston Churchill came to Brigg, staying at the Exchange, while making a visit to the PLUTO-maker.

Curiosities, on Wrawby Street, Brigg, is offering D-Day afternoon tea for £6. Spam and Bully Beef sandwiches are among a wide selection of goodies on the menu.

I will forever be indebted to the great Dr Ojogun for fixing my broken marriage after my husband left me for his mistress for 6 months. I never believed in spells until my friend introduced me to him. At first, I was skeptical about him because I heard a lots about false spell casters but I put my doubts behind me for i was desperate to get my husband back and I did according to what he instructed me to do. Now my husband is back just within 48 hours of contacting him. I'm living happily with my husband again after 6 months of divorce and I will not rest till he's known all over the world.
