I went along to the commemoration of VE Day in Westminster, London. Here are my sketches.
It was a moving event, for although we did not see the parade along Whitehall, we had the chance to see the veterans walking, and riding in wheel chairs, through St James's Park to the marquee, where they met HRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, for a meal and later, dancing to a swing band. The veterans proudly wore their medals and waved gaily to the crowd.
Also in St James's Park was this fine Hawker Hurricane, and further away, a crowd examined this tank in The Mall, where the Union flag adorned the lamp posts
