Tea Cup Tuesday - Commemorative V E Day 8th May 1945





Today is the 67th Anniversary of V. E. Day. This mug was produced in Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the event. What I love about this mug is the emotion displays on the faces of the people shown. This was probably a site replicated all across the United Kingdom and many places in Europe; that War was finally over; It was in Europe, V. J. Day didn't happen until later, in August 1945.

Here is a clipping from a newspaper published in South West Scotland, here my late father in law shared his memories.

  3. The mug commemorating the 50th anniversary of VE day is so special. You are absolutely right about the expressions on the faces of the people pictured on your commerative mug. It must have been overwhelming in emotions at that time. My parents and in-laws spoke some about the war but my father-in-law was gone for several years and spoke about it only when really asked.
    Thanks for sharing!
