A war veteran in isolation in his care home received a special salute for the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
Signalman Eric Bradshaw sent and received messages from his Royal Navy ship after enlisting in 1943.
Locals wanted to applaud the 95-year-old and other residents after reading about his exploits on social media.
Mr Bradshaw said: "I hope young ones today can learn from what we went through, and to be tolerant and always use their common sense.
"Hopefully people in the future will never have to go through what we did and make the sacrifices we made."
