Shutter on display
A WINDOW shutter is taking pride of place in a new display in Torquay.
The shutter used to hang in the Rosetor Hotel in Chestnut Avenue and bears the names of 15 RAF airman who stayed there during World War Two.
They were among 55,000 airmen who passed through the town for training.
After two years of planning, the shutter has returned to the site, now the Riviera International Conference Centre, and has been unveiled for permanent display.
