Mystery Irish D-Day plaque finds resting place

Tony Flitter and his son Nigel, with the stone

A D-Day memorial stone which two military antique dealers bought at a fair in the UK has been presented to a museum after detective work by them and Connexion.

Tony Flitter and son Nigel bought the crafted stone at a sale in Newark, Notts, and wanted to return it to its rightful place.

They contacted Connexion for help as the seller was French.

“It is a commissioned piece,” said Mr Flitter, from Lincoln. “It says ‘D-Day 1944-1994’ in gold relief with the insignia of the Royal Irish Rifles.”
