Celebrating VE Day in Wickham
Victory in Europe Day – VE Day – signified the end to nearly 6 years of war.
People rejoiced in the news that Germany had surrendered and marked the victory with street parties, as did Wickham.
Rationing was still severe, and so there were sandwiches – probably jam and paste – but not many cakes. To drink, fizzy orange-flavoured water, and home-made lemonade.
