VE day celebrations in the streets

What a day it must have been!  75 years on and hopefully we will once more be celebrating victory together in the streets over a very different kind of war.

Watch this show reel from Imperial War Museum – VE Day, 8 May 1945 was a day to celebrate. Victory in Europe Day marked the long-awaited defeat of Nazi Germany by the Allies and followed the formal acts of military surrender. In Britain, Churchill marked the occasion by declaring this day a Public Holiday. People held local street parties, danced and sang in the streets and huge crowds gathered in London around Westminster, Trafalgar Square and outside Buckingham Palace.
