D-Day Remembrance letter was incomplete

Somewhere between leaving my computer and reaching your letters pages a few words went astray in my letter regarding D-Day commemorations in Newhaven.

After June 6th I had the words “where a local veteran of the D- Day landing on Sword beach gave the exhortation”. These were reduced to “I gave the exhortation”. I did not, nor would I presume to. It was given, as Tony Nicholson rightly noted in his letter, by Mr Patrick Kent in honour of his comrades.
