VJ Day 75: Surviving North Devon veterans mark poignant anniversary
Posted on 19th August 2020 at 13:24
North Devon’s remaining few Burma Star veterans have attended a moving VJ Day remembrance service to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two.
They gathered at the war memorial in Rock Park in Barnstaple this morning (Saturday, August 15) to mark the same day 75 years ago when Japan surrendered and the war was finally over.
With numbers of survivors of the war in the Far East sadly now very few, it is not known how much longer the traditional VJ Day act of remembrance organised by Barnstaple Royal British Legion will continue.
