VE Day, 75th Anniversary

BDU3A will be celebrating VE Day in the only way we can under current circumstances. Our intention is to have a dedicated webpage where we can record your memories. We have already had photographs of photographs, written memories, not only of that momentous day in 1945, but also of memories of other VE Day celebrations, 25, 50 years? If you have such memories/photos you would like to share please send to, or direct to
All contributions will be posted and shared with all our members. Can’t wait to hear from you.
