Ex-Services Association marking VJ Day

As the years take us further away from the catastrophic events of the 20th century, recollections of those dark days are fading, writes Arthur Pearsall.

But there are many who remember with clarity the way their lives were changed forever by the events of the Second World War.

Sadly for many of this generation, August 15 1945 – VJ and End of WW2 Day – has very little recognition today.

However, veterans and friends of the Alvechurch Ex-Services Association ensure the date is commemorated, and on August 15 we assembled at the Memorial Green on Bear Hill to pay our respects to those who helped make such a day possible.
