NINETY-year-old Sidney Marshall made an extraordinary sacrifice for his country.

As a UK Royal Air Force (RAF) fighter pilot, he was one of the 156,000 personnel who fought for freedom on D-day.
But Marshall, who died at his home in St Annes, England, on June 16, has few living relatives. And those who are still alive live considerable distances away. Undertakers fear no one will attend his funeral service.

So a local funeral director has made an extraordinary plea to fellow Armed Forces personnel: Come to Mr Marshall’s funeral. Don’t let this brave man be sent off alone.
