WW II veterans honoured with wartime music
New Players Choral Society hosted a show featuring wartime jingles at St. Agnes Church
A choral society honoured a group of Second World War veterans this weekend by singing some wartime favourites.
The New Players Choral Society hosted a show featuring wartime jingles at St. Agnes Church in Halifax Sunday.
The society is made up of seniors, aged 50 to 95.
"To us, music is the best medicine you can ever have," said John O'Hallaron, director of the New Players Choral Society.
Veteran Norman Crewe said the music really takes him back.
"It'll never been forgotten. Even if you live to be a hundred. Of course, I'm only 94. No, honest, it's really something to listen and hear again," he said.
For the first time, the group invited veterans to play a role in the show. They were marched in with bagpipes.
