Ex-commando sells poppies from his garage

A 93-year-old veteran former sailor and ex-commando is selling Remembrance Day poppies from his garage.

Harold Turtle was torpedoed in the defence of Malta, took part in the hunt for the Scharnhorst, sailed on the Arctic convoys and fought his way through North Africa and Italy before taking part in the D Day landings.

But, over the last 30 years, he has become something of a local celebrity for his pop-up poppy shop in Newcastle.
