50th anniversary of VJ Day


Categories: History, War Memorial WW2

The surrender of Japan was announced in Japan (USA, Europe, etc.) on 14 (15) August 1945 and effectively ended WW2. The paperwork was done two weeks later on 2 September. All three dates are sometimes known as VJ Day. In the UK the official date is 15 August. The title was chosen by analogy to VE Day for Victory in Europe.
