VE Day 1945 recalled from Covid-19 isolation!

Friday 8th May 2020 marked 75 years since the nation celebrated the allied victory in Europe with VE Day. Although the current pandemic meant that commemorative events across Surrey had to be postponed or cancelled, residents still found ways to mark this historic day from their isolation. And many of the Surrey based veterans and those who lived through WW2 took the time to recall their memories of VE Day 1945. From her Covid-19 self isolation, one of Surrey’s longest serving Deputy Lieutenants, Dame Elizabeth Anson DBE JP DL, shared diary extracts she had written on VE Day as a 14-year-old school girl at the Royal Naval School in Haslemere. Do watch her on this YouTube video. more…
