Sark welcomed some very special visitors on Friday to help celebrate the 74th anniversary of the Liberation. Sark was freed from German occupation on 10th May 1945, a day later than Jersey and Guernsey. To mark the occasion the Sark branch of the Royal British Legion hosted a visit by three Chelsea Pensioners and three Gurkhas who were accompanied by Sir Ian Corder, the Lieutenant Governor of Guernsey, and his wife Lady Corder. The Pensioners visited the Sark Museum while the Gurkhas went to see the place where a team of Cammandos landed during the War then the party joined together at the Island Hall to meet residents, visitors and Sark School children. The guests were presented with a card that Class One pupils had made and they were also given two of the ceramic poppies made on the island for the last Remembrance Sunday. They then had a quick stop at the Bel Air before heading back to Guernsey for more celebrations.
