Loughton Town Council - 75th VE/VJ CELEBRATIONS

Published: 01 May 2020

This is an opportunity across the UK, as organisations, family and friends largely made up of descendants of those brave service men and women, and civilians come together to remember both the heroism and suffering of their forbears, many of whom have now passed out of living memory.

Whilst we are on our own current lock down and street parties, large gatherings and celebrations are sadly out of the question, we still plan to mark the historic occasion. We would like to collate articles from local residents who can recall and provide memories of the VE Day and/or VJ Day celebrations. The concept is to mark the sacrifices of a generation and preserve these anecdotes for future generations as we mark these 75th anniversary celebrations.  We would hope to publish these articles at some point in the future.
