Happy VE Day

Guess this can be a bit lost on most youngsters , and try to tell them that 3 months of lockdown is nothing compared to 5 years of WAR .. 

Everything’s relative I guess ... just thought I’d share some pics of mine - Dad was a Navigator flying Shackletons over Norway in Bomber Command during the war . 

Hope you all have a safe one .

 

”We’ll meet again “
