LINK Reader, Brigadier Christopher Wolverson of Great Wolford, has kindly sent me some photographs he thought may be of interest at this time.
They relate to D-Day in June 1944, but without that day, we would not have seen VE Day on Tuesday 8 May 1945.

6 June 1944: Royal Marine Commandos of Headquarters, 4th Special Service Brigade, make their way onto 'Nan Red' Beach at Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer.
 [Ed - This is possibly one of the most striking photographs I've seen of the landings. The soldier in the foreground, with his glasses, measured step and delicate grip upon his rifle, looks as if he's more used to being behind a desk than wading onto a beach in Northern France. We owe him, and others like him, a great debt.]

6 June 1944: A Canadian soldier stands at the head of a group of German prisoners of war, including two officers, on Juno Beach, Normandy.
 [Ed - Another amazing photograph showing an ordinary Canadian solider in an extraordinary situation.]

12 June 1944: A group of American soldiers stand in the village of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, which was liberated by paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division.
