RESIDENTS of a care home were left "buzzing" after being treated with a talk from veterans on Remembrance Day.

Milford House Care Home invited five Army veterans for lunch before they reminisced about war-time memories.

Many residents brought along their own keepsakes and remembrance sheets to the talk to highlight their own personal experiences or those of loved ones.

After sharing lunch in the dining rooms everyone convened downstairs to hear some amazing stories from the veterans as they described particular aspects of their service, talked about soldiers from the past and showed their memorabilia.

Lt Bridget Hamilton, Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps, Lt Colonel Robert Hamilton, Royal Artillery, Lt Colonel Andrew Gillespie, Royal Artillery, Colonel Kevin Arnold, Royal Artillery and Lt Colonel Barry Fairbrother, Royal Logistics Corps, gave a talk.

General manager Gemma Hicks said: "'Remembrance Day is a very important and special day for so many people and one we always mark at Milford House.

"We simply couldn't have squeezed another person into our dining room to hear the veterans talk after lunch or in our conservatory for the service.

"Afterwards, everyone was buzzing from the experience and being able to share in such a very special afternoon."
