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.
