On 8th May 1945, both Great Britain and the United States celebrate Victory in Europe Day. Celebrations took place across Europe and North America: in London over a million people celebrated the end of the European war. Crowds massed in Trafalgar Square and up the Mall to Buckingham Palace, where King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, accompanied by the Prime Minister Winston Churchill, appeared on the balcony of the Palace to cheering crowds.
Christmas time in 1940, really was an explosive one, and on the evening of the 29th and 30th December, Luftwaffe, Germany’s powerful Air force, launched a devastating raid on London. Named the Blitz, during the raid 130 Heinkel HE111s aircraft dropped 10,000 Incendiary bombs, 300 bombs a minute, on central London causing a massive series of fires that wiped out the historical centre of London.
