VJ Day 75 Service of Remembrance

In 2020, in partnership with The Royal British Legion, we will be asking the Nation to remember the impact that leaving, missing and returning home has on service men and women & their loved ones – then and now. The commemorations for both VE and VJ Day will illustrate the scale of the service and sacrifice made by the men and women of the Second World War generation.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are reviewing our plans to hold an event on site to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VJ Day in August.

Whilst we may not be able to deliver our original programme of activity, we are working closely with The Royal British Legion to identify ways to still commemorate this important anniversary, and to ensure that plans align with restrictions and social distancing guidelines that are likely to be in place at the time.

Details of the commemorations, and how you can support and take part in the activities, will be provided as soon as possible.
