1945 VE Day in Europe.

After five years, eight months, and five days of massive devastation, the end of the European phase of World War II was celebrated.
Victory in Europe was commemorated with celebrations all around the world in recognition of the unconditional surrender of all German forces signed in Reims, France, the previous day.
Followed by VJ Day 0n 15 August and the commencement of the 'wall of silence' which was totally understandable at the time. We shall remember!
I was born that very day, my mother told me she was in hospital, when the news went around. Every one was jumping around with excitement.
I'm proud to be born on that day.
