VE Day 75
After six years of bitter fighting, the end of hostilities were officially announced on the 8th May 1945 by Prime Minister Winston Churchill. That date has since become enshrined in history as VE Day.
VE Day 75, on 8th May 2020, is an international celebration of peace. It is a time to remember, reflect and pay tribute to the millions who played such a vital part in achieving it. This includes the Armed Forces personnel from many countries who gave their lives or were physically and mentally injured; the hard-working women and men who kept the factories, mines, shipyards and farms operating throughout the years of turmoil; the ARP wardens, police officers, doctors, nurses, firemen, local defence volunteers and many others safeguarded the home front.
The partners at Mander Cruickshank hope that after reflecting on the sacrifices made by so many, you all go on to have a safe and enjoyable celebration of VE Day 75.
