London VE Day Photos from 8th May 1945

Stephen Liddell

Today is VE Day and I wasn’t going to post anything in particular but a quick search came across countless incredible photos and so I thought, why not!

VE Day is a public holiday in several European countries such as France though incredibly not in the UK as though the 8th May 1945 saw the end of war in Europe, the fighting continued in the Pacific and the war wasn’t going to be over until it was over.

Happy VE Day everyone!  Enjoy your freedom and remember those whose lives made it possible.
