Residents and staff at Buckingham Lodge in Aylesbury have held a 1940’s themed day in aid of Armed Forces Day, celebrating all those currently in service, veterans, cadets and service families of the British armed forces.

Poetry reading Buckingham Lodge Armed Forces Day

Buckingham Lodge Manager Wendy Luck said: “Many of the older people living in our care homes fought and lived through the Second World War so we know what a brave contribution the armed forces have made and continue to make towards the freedom of this country.”

There was plenty of entertainment throughout the day including performances from Dove Creative Arts Group and Cups & Saucers Vintage Group. There was also poetry readings and some of the very best 1940’s wartime songs from the very talented Dave Clarke.
