Letters, diaries and photographs from World War II

Tuesday 8th May 1945

It’s Victory Day today. Thank goodness the first part is over. I can’t raise any enthusiasm for celebrations. Thanksgivings, yes, so I attend the service, I listen to the speeches of Churchill and the King.

It’s getting boring and the flies are as bad as ever.
