Major Geoffrey Appleyard, the commander of the force that landed on Sark in October 1942, died in a plane crash in July 1943 and his body was never found.
Nevertheless, he is remembered by a memorial at the Bradley Baptist Churchyard which was created in 1946.
That memorial has been rediscovered and is being fixed up by local volunteers, but they need our help.
They have made available a book originally published by Appleyard’s father just after the war.
It’s a very moving collection of memories including many letters from Major Appleyard to his family.
They’re selling copies to help raise money to keep the memory of Geoffrey Appleyard alive — and they deserve our support.
