VE Day!!


Recommended Posts

Picture taken this morning, May 8th 2010, in my garage. A newly acquired burnt out project VW166 - note the sign above the garage door.




Another picture taken May 8th 1945, exactly 65 years previous and just a couple of miles away.


U.S. troops celebrate the end of hostilities in Europe, when that picture was taken the VW above was only about a year old :crazy:

Point of order! The official end of WW2 was one minute after midnight May 9th 1945!

On May 8th 1945 German Naval Officer's under the command of admiral Huffmier warned theCaptain of HMS Beagle of Gurnersey that as the surrender was not officially in force his ship might be fired on.
