A special visitor

On Saturday 30th June a special visitor is arriving by train at Swanage Railway Station.

The last time he was here was 68 years ago and the World was very different, in fact it was at war. 

The visitor is an American GI Wes Mullen who in 1944 stayed in Swanage before heading off to Normandy.  Sadly many of those troops never returned so Wes is returning to Swanage to thank the town for its kindness.

Having arrived at the Station, the party will head up to the memorial by the bandstand for a short service.

So if you are free and wish to welcome Wes to Swanage, come down to the railway station at 11am on Saturday.
