Here we have a collection of photos from 1945, on this day of the WWII Victory Parade taken in Bremerhaven, Germany. These photos were submitted by a generous member of Forces War Records and added to our ‘Historic Libraries’.
You can view more of this collection of photos and documents sent in by Sgt. Walter Brown 298th Field Battery R.A., 126th (H) Field Regiment R.A., B.A.O.R here: http://fwr.to/Gb86B
Other pictures included are river crossing the Maas, surrender of the 15th Panzer Grenadier Division, Highland games and so much more.
Discovering your ancestors in the framework of such rich British military history makes genealogy much more than just dates and places – it’s about people, heroes, bravery, lives saved and lives lost. It’s about your history — it’s about you!
If you have a war diary in your family then please send your contact details and a few lines about your ancestor and their diary to Diaries@forces-war-records.co.uk.
We are particularly on the hunt for any World War One diaries so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have a story in your family that you’d like to get heard.
