75 years ago Strete, Slapton and Torcross were amongst the villages evacuated in the South Hams to allow American Troops to train for D-Day Landings known as Exercise Tiger.
Strete plans to remember the evacuation of the villages with an event at The Kings Arms pub that includes food and music.
This will co-inside with the 75th memorial of Exercise Tiger that will take place around the Tank Memorial in Torcross and the Memorial on Slapton Line near the Slapton village road junction the following day on Sunday 28th April 2019.
