In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, VE Day was a somewhat different affair to the one that may have been envisaged many months ago. However, despite the restrictions currently in place, villagers where I live made a tremendous effort decorating their homes to commemorate VE Day. On the 8th May 1945 – 75 years ago – the Allies accepted the unconditional surrender of the armed forces of Nazi Germany, marking the end of World War II in Europe.
Here’s a video I produced with the images, with me playing ‘Jerusalem’ on the church organ. I posted the video on Facebook, which lasted a few hours! Facebook reduces the quality of uploaded videos and photographs and sorry to those who liked the Facebook video but I just couldn’t cope with the video not being shown at its best.
Here is a link to the gallery of my photos taken on the day:
I also updated my spring photo gallery here (as the village was looking beautiful):
