Thanks to those members who sent me photos of their celebrations, please see below

Celia put up a flag in her front window on VE day along with bunting and flags. The photos are of her mum and dad, her husband’s mum and dad and his aunt. They are all in uniform except he husband’s mum, who worked in the ticket office at Baker Street station. They had scones and tea on their front lawn. Their neighbours had their bbq in the front garden and  shared their rack of lamb. ( He is a chef in charge of several care homes)
