Victory in Europe Day, or VE Day, on 8th May 1945 marks the official day the fighting in Europe came to an end following Germany’s unconditional surrender of its Armed Forces. After nearly 6 years, the long-awaited announcement that WWII was finally over prompted widespread celebrations not just across the UK, but all over the world. In 2020 we celebrate seventy-five years since this momentous day. To coincide with this historic landmark, the Early May Bank Holiday has officially moved for only the second time ever, from Monday 4th to Friday 8th May.
2020 marks the 80th anniversaries of some of the biggest battles that took place during World War II. The Battle of Britain, one of the deadliest conflicts, inevitably began on the 10th July 1940 following the German Luftwaffe making their first bomber attack on British ships in the English Channel. Airfields and harbours across the United Kingdom were bombed up until October of the same year, resulting in the loss of approximately 500 pilots. However, despite heavy losses, the battle is regarded as one of the most important Allied successes of the War. The legendary Spitfire and Hurricane aircraft have also become iconic symbols of victory for their role in preventing a full-scale German invasion.
This year we commemorate 80 years since the Battle of Dunkirk, history’s most ambitious wartime evacuation. Lasting between the 26th of May and 4th June 1940, the ‘Miracle of Dunkirk’ became a defining moment of World War Two. Widely regarded as the Allies’ most celebrated and biggest victories during the war, Sir Winston Churchill has been commended for his role in ‘Operation Dynamo’. The wartime Prime Minister initiated the rescue mission, which saw the successful evacuation of approximately 330,000 Allied troops, trapped and blocked by German forces on the beaches of Northern France.
