Victory in Europe Day Friday 8th May 2020


When V.E. Day dawns on 8th May 2020 it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe, which, to the Allies, effectively ended their World War. Millions of people took to the streets and pubs to celebrate peace.


Years of carnage and destruction had come to an end and they could mourn their loved ones and to hope for the future, but not forgetting those still in conflict until 15th August, when it was announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally to the Allies, effectively ending World War II.
