D-DAY VETERAN LEADS TOWN RESPECTS

8 November 2019

Bernard How, 95, and 50 years a season ticket holder, heads Remembrance Day tribute

The teams will be led out by a veteran of D-Day on Saturday as the Club marks Remembrance Day at Blues' FA Cup-tie against Lincoln.

Bernard How is 95 years young. A season ticket holder at Portman Road for 50 years, he watched his first Town game in 1949.

A flight engineer on Stirling bombers and a member of 199 squadron in the RAF, Bernard took part in 35 missions during the Second World War, including D-Day in 1944.

He will joined by Corporal Wayne Martin of RAF Honnington in leading the Club’s tribute to those who have lost their life in conflict around the world.

As well as leading the teams out, Bernard and Wayne will lay a wreath before kick-off with the Last Post being played by Jon Holden from the East of England Co-op Brass Band.  

The Royal British Legion will be collecting donations outside the ground, in the FanZone and in hospitality areas.
