August 14th, 2010

or was that 1945?

V J Day

The term has been applied to both the day on which the initial announcement of Japan's surrender was made in the afternoon of August 15, 1945 in Japan, and because of time zone differences, to August 14, 1945 (when it was announced in the United States, Western Europe, the Americas, the Pacific Islands, and Australia), as well as to September 2, 1945 when the signing of the surrender document occurred.

We were asked as a club to participate in the celebration of the 65th anniversary of VJ Day at the Frontiers Of Flight Museum 

Here are a few photos from the event.
