Hugh Ewart – 41 Commando

Former Royal Marine Commando Hugh Ewart, 92, passed away last Saturday and his family are hoping standard bearers and buglers will give him a fitting send-off tomorrow.

Liberation of Bergen Belsen
Last year, father-of-five Hugh, from Coatbridge, was presented with the Legion d’Honneur for his part in the D-Day landings and liberation of France.

The former steel worker was 18 when he volunteered to take on the Nazis. He served as a sniper with the elite Royal Marines Commandos.

As part of 41 Commando, he was also involved in the liberation of Bergen-Belsen, near Celle in northern Germany, in April 1945.
