The last survivor of a Second World War "ghost village" died at the age of 98 earlier this year. Donald Balls was serving in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) when his home town, Tottington in Norfolk (not pictured), was taken over by the British Army to use as a military range during preparations for Operation Overlord. Despite promises to the contrary, the residents of the village were never allowed to return to their homes and it remains within the Ministry of Defence's Thetford infantry training area.
