Victory in Europe was celebrated on this day 75 years ago.
We can only imagine the sheer relief and joy that day.
My own parents lived through it all, including the Blitz on London.
My Dad, serving in the Navy, ended up in Japan, as the war still rolled on in the Far East for many more months.
Forget any ridiculous and unpalatable comparisons with the virus – or even worse Brexit – for this was a savage and brutal conflict.
Let us just remember all who died, and those that lived through and endured those years.
