VE DAY IN BRIGG - TRIBUTES ON 75TH ANNIVERSARY TO THE FALLEN
Brigg held a poignant ceremony to mark the the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday, May 8 to remember those who died while serving their country during the Second World War.
Llew Gudgeon - a veteran of the Falklands War and the First Gulf War - was the first ex-serviceman to arrive at the Monument where he planted a personal cross in one of the flowerbeds in memory of The Fallen (see picture).
Wreaths were then laid at the base of the memorial by Alan Lettin, ex-Royal Marines, and Will Hughes, ex-RAF (both pictured ).
The veterans then joined the 40 other people present, of all ages, in observing the national two-minute silence - joined by many other Brigg people in their homes and places of work.
