VE Day (Victory in Europe) – Tuesday 8th May 1945
A Yellow Advertiser newspaper cutting dated 19th May 1995, tells the story of a lady by the name of Edna Batchford who found a forgotten snap on the top of her wardrobe. Mrs Batchford remembers the party, which she says was paid for by the Layzell family, who owned a ironmongers shop in the nearby London Road.
After the publication of the photo, the newspaper recalls there was an ‘overwhelming response from readers’. A further photo was printed in the following edition.
All the photos below were also taken at the same event.
