First Quote of the day for VJ day 75th anniversary, 15th August 2020

 “You were the last to come home but your achievements are written in the lights of the glittering capitals of the dynamic region we see today.

“You fought for freedom, brought the Second World War to its end, and restored peace and prosperity to the world.

“All of us who were born after you have benefited from your courage in adversity. On this anniversary, and every day hereafter, you will be remembered.”

(PM Boris Johnson, letter to Far East veterans on the 75th anniversary of the end of the war against Japan.)
