VJ Day 15th August 1945
The British Modern Military History Society salutes all those men and women who served in the far east in the war against Japan until the very last day of World War Two. They all suffered immense hardships, barbarity and harsh conditions as a result of the fighting and for many in captivity as POWs, but their resilience and determination to fight for freedom demonstrated huge spirit and commitment to the cause, with tens of thousands paying the ultimate sacrifice and many suffering a life time of injuries, both physical and mental. While referred to as the Forgotten Army, they are not forgotten and never should be.
The BMMHS pays tribute to you all on this 75th anniversary of VJ Day.
Stay safe and well.
The BMMHS Team
