The 8th of May 1945 saw the end of the European campaign of World War 2 when the remaining German forces surrendered to the Allies, Winston Churchill announced the end of hostilities in a radio broadcast to the people and there was much celebrating on the streets of the UK. BUT, the war cost the lives of many, many millions of not just military personnel but civilians too and ON BOTH SIDES. Today if you have a spare couple of minutes spare a thought for the dead of an awful war and remember that without them we would have a Nazi tyranny ruling Europe now.

Today, the 8th of May 2010 is 65 years since that historic day and we call it VE Day. Never Forget.
