VJ Day 2020

As the Nation marks the 75th anniversary of Victory over Japan Day John added his thanks and praise to all those involved in the Far East Campaign.

John said: “In different circumstances  we might have had much public recognition of those last to come home from the conflict. None the less a quiet moment to reflect was not passed by. We owe an enormous debt to our VJ veterans for their courage and sacrifice and I add my thanks and praise. The Prime Minister has eloquently written to the veterans and I echo his words.”
 

Although it has not been possible to have large community celebrations the Government website has interesting information and also some moving stories.
