VE DAY CELEBRATIONS
On this day seventy five years ago celebrations began to mark the end of the European chapter of the Second World War. This Association has had the immense privilege to have had many among its membership who were involved with the war and played their part in vanquishing the evil of Nazi-ism as they strove for peace. The only member now living who was involved in that endeavour was Flt Lt John Cruickshank VC ED and we salute him now. If you have a moment you might like to visit his page on this website: https://vcgca.org/our-people/profile/7/John-Alexander-CRUICKSHANK
If you would like to get a little more involved, may we suggest you visit this website: https://www.nam.ac.uk/ where you can find the National Army Museum, the Royal Air Force Museum and the National Museum of the Royal Navy coming together with a fantastic programme for their VE DAY Virtual Festival.
As we celebrate, we must not forget that many would have been still fighting, or imprisoned and enduring extreme hardship in the Far East for some months yet and while celebrating VE Day their families would have had heavy hearts thinking of them.
