The funeral of a remarkable Bettisfield resident ws held last week.  Joan Kington, who died aged 96, was a farmer who joined the Army as a driver in WW11, was driver to the US Advocate General, landed in Normandy as part of the D-Day force, saw the horrors of concentration camps and attended the Nuremburg War Crimes trials.  There can not be many men, let alone women who had such a remarkable life.
