Children Celebrating VE Day 1945


About this memory

Jean Watt (front row, fourth left).

"Informal party organised by neighbours to celebrate VE Day (note the various kitchen chair styles used). Everyone grew veg, kept chickens during the war, and baked, so I expect there would have been plenty of food contributed. Everyone looks very well-fed!" - Jean Watt
