Britain celebrates VE Day on May 8, and this year’s commemoration is particularly special as it marks 75 years since the Allies ended the battle for Europe in the Second World War.

But because of the coronavirus outbreak many of those who were present at the event are unlikely to be able to participate in the kind of celebration that otherwise would have been planned.

The County Times is looking for people who may have memories of the event, who were stationed overseas or who watched from home as the war came to an end, to speak to us for a special feature reflecting on this important anniversary.

We are also asking anybody who has any photographs depicting celebrations on VE Day in Mid Wales to come forward and share them with us so we can provide a printed commemoration of this hugely important day in British history, even if we can’t all mark the milestone anniversary together.

If you have any information about events that took place in Mid Wales on VE Day in 1945, or any photographs which depict the celebrations, or if you or anyone you know was on the ground in Europe when the Nazis surrendered, get in touch.
