Choir boys from Tiffin School performed in Normandy’s Bayeux Cathedral as part of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings this month.

The 16 trebles rehearsed with the Band of the Royal Yeomanry before the special service in front of veterans, worshippers and director-general of the Royal British Legion, Chris Simpkins, on Thursday, June 5.

Headteacher Hilda Clarke, who also came along for the service, laid a wreath in respect of ex-Tiffinian, James Robert Brooks, who was killed in action in July 1944 and buried at Cambes-En-Plaine war cemetery.

Rebecca Bevan, music administrator at the school, said: "The boys were complimented on their beautiful singing and enjoyed a meal in Ouistreham and celebratory fireworks before heading home on the overnight ferry. It was certainly a day to remember."
