STRETE village pump and thatched propertioes c1938 / This plaque is to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of D-Day, 6th June 1944 and to remember the residents of Strete who were evactuated in December 1943. / The evacuation became necessary because this part of the South Hams was to be used as a battle training area by Allied Forces prior to the Normandy Landings. ? The car park to your left is the site of the former Womens Institure Reading Room, Boys Club, Cottage and Blacksmith's Shop as shown in the illustration. Unfortunately these thatched properties were burnt down in 1944 as a result of a practice assault by Allied Forces using live ammunition. / Strete Parish Council 6th June 1994
