‘A Great day for the World, for Scotland, and for St Andrews’: VE Day from a Local Perspective

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic lecture/debate/seminar

Derek John Patrick - Speaker

The 6 June 2019 and 8 May 2020 will mark the seventy-fifth anniversaries of D-Day and VE Day, the latter signalling the end of the Second World War in Europe made possible by the Normandy Landings. In St Andrews the news was ‘celebrated with restraint and dignity as well as with general rejoicings’, with the Town Hall packed for a ‘Victory Dance’. This lecture will consider the closing stages of the war in Europe, its impact on the local area, and reactions to Germany’s unconditional surrender.
