Anonymous crafters have once again targeted a Weymouth post box with an incredible D-Day inspired creation.

The design was created as a homage to the sacrifice made by thousands of British and American soldiers who left from Weymouth and Portland, many never to return.

Dorset Echo:

The impressive design sits on top of a post box along Radipole Lane, near to Radipole School.

The topper depicts two soldiers to represent those who took part in the D Day landings and on one side of the post box a laminated note reads ’80 years later we still remember them,’ whilst the other side another note reads ‘6th June 1944 Omaha Beach.’

The last time the anonymous creator targeted the post box was around Easter, depicting spring-time animals including a bunny, chick and chicken which sat on top, whilst a crocheted sheep dangled from the side.

Other yarn bombers around the area have also been using their knitting, crochet and other crafty skills to pay tribute to the D Day soldiers.

This includes the Knitoholics who target Weymouth’s South Harbourside with their amazing displays and they have recently re-shared the bollard jumpers that they created for Remembrance Sunday last year.

A summery bollard jumper has also been spotted outside of the Old Rooms Inn along the South Harbourside made up of bright colours, there are flowers, butterflies, a bee, as well as a blue bird sat in her nest with her eggs and a chick

Additionally, along Portland Road an anonymous duo has created a split scene of a tank on the beach, contrasted with a landing craft at sea.

There are three poppies also stitched on to signify remembrance as well as bunting which reads 1944 and 2024.

The Knit-Wits have also shared some brilliant bollard jumpers depicting military personnel which are lining the streets of Hope Square.

There were plenty of D Day celebrations taking place across Dorset including beacon lightings, memorial services, boat rides and rail trips.
