72 years ago today many gave their lives on the beaches of Normandy as part of Operation Overlord.
A small service of remembrance led by Rev. Tony Higgins saw those present pause to remember.
Members of the rowing club lifted their oars in respect during the two minute silence which also saw the Coastguard helicopter fly past on route back to Portland.
Thank you to Nico, Dinah and those who turned up to make is so special
