75th anniversary of VE Day

Today we pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of the entire Second World War generation, from British, Commonwealth and Allied Forces to evacuees and those who served on the home front. As we face some of the most challenging times since the end of the Second World War, now more than ever it is important to unite in recognition of service to the nation, just as communities did 75 years ago. Keep safe, keep well.

To help mark and remember this significant occasion Barnet Museum and Local History Society have produced a special issue of their Journal to explore how residents of the town celebrated the breaking news of Victory in Europe.
