Remembrance Celebration Service

Harton Academy today had the privilege of being joined in their Remembrance Celebration Services by two highly decorated veterans from World War Two, as well as members of the local community. The war heroes were Mr Harold Yeoman, a former RAF bomber pilot, and an Old Boy of the school and of Westoe Rugby club. He was joined by Mr Jim Harris, a former member of the Royal Navy who, at the age of 17 at the time, was the youngest member of the Navy to be awarded the Distinguished Service Medal.

Harton has always been proud of our efforts to honour those who have fought in the country’s many conflicts, and today’s visitors offered a very fitting and much appreciated contribution to our final assembly.
