Arthur Bailey Obituary, Death – After hearing the news of D-Day veteran and museum volunteer Arthur Bailey’s passing, everyone who works at or helps at the museum is in a state of shock. In the year 1942, Arthur enlisted in the armed forces of his country to perform military service for his nation. He joined the military at the beginning of 1944 and served as a member of the 49th (West Riding) Division for the rest of that year. At that point, he had completed his 18th year of life. After the events of D-Day, he made his way to Normandy and took part in the fighting that was taking on in that part of the world. In his later years, he devoted a considerable portion of his leisure time to volunteering at the museum.
There, he entertained guests by telling tales from his own life and relaying events from his past. It is highly improbable that we will have many opportunities to interact with him in this region. This magnificent picture of Arthur was taken by patron John Richards in the year 2019 when they both paid a visit to the museum and were finally able to make eye contact with one another there for the very first time. This was the first time that they had ever seen one other.
