One of my earliest memories is of this day 66 years ago (15th August 1945) when in my first year at school we were given the afternoon off following the news of the Victory over Japan.  It was also my brother Ken’s 8th Birthday.  Sadly Ken is no longer with us. 

In a collection of old badges I found the two shown below.  We were all given a Victory medal.   I do not remember the Victory Sports in 1945 but it is good to remember the events that led to that day. Ian Willoughby
