VE Day 8th May 1945
The British Modern Military History Society salutes all those men and women who fought and contributed to Victory in Europe on 8 May 1945. We all owe a great level of gratitude and thanks for the trials, sacrifices and suffering that generation went through to win the war against an unspeakable Nazi tyranny.
However, we must not forget that World War 2 did not finish on VE Day. The war in the far east against the Japanese continued for 3 more months until August 1945 and the dropping of the two atomic bombs. Many British, Commonwealth and other allied servicemen and woman fought and died in that period, and we must not forget them.
Enjoy VE Day celebrations today, but let’s make sure we celebrate and remember VJ Day in August.
Stay safe and well.
