Friday 8th May!
VE day!!! 75 years ago, The Second World War ended in Europe, everyone celebrated! Britain won, but the celebrations were that the war was over. The TV has been full of images of thousands and thousands of people celebrating all over the country in 1945. It already looks strange too see massive groups of people, baring in mind what we are going through now.
My street celebrated by having a mini (socially distanced!) street party! We all sat at the end of our drives and we had a really good time!
My Great Grannie (Gran Gran as I called her), was in the Navy and fought in WWII. She was only 20 years old when the war ended! This is her in 1945. She died last September.
