VE Day Celebrations!

Somewhat subdued due to le virus, but nonetheless we have had a Spitfire fly-past over my town. In my town there is the Queen Victoria Hospital, where pilots who became burnt whilst fighting in the Battle of Britain were taken to be treated for their wounds, hence the fly-past.

A (poor-quality) picture taken by my mother.

The Spitfire performed around four passes, two of which went right over our heads. On the last pass the pilot performed a "Victory Roll" in front of us. We were watching from the local meadows, and about 100 people were present despite the current lockdown.

Type "VE" to pay respect for the fallen.
