Victory in Europe day – 75 years since the end of WWII in Europe. Time for a Sing Song

Image may contain: 1 person, crowd and outdoor


So, 75 years ago today it was Victory in Europe day, V.E day. That’s a fact.

The war in the far east rattled on for a few more months, but the war in Europe was finally over and peace was restored.

Seeing the crowds gathering in the streets to celebrate the end of a long and desperate war must have been a sight to behold.

To celebrate I have recorded new versions of two wartime classics.



FOWC with Fandango — Fact



Blind Victory – A Poem

This poem was written for the Tuesday Writing Prompt for the Go Dog Go Cafe, see the post here:

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge: Tuesday, June 18, 2019


Droplets fall from sunken eyes,

Tears shed by shadows left behind

Bodies lying bitten by flies,

Broken children of humankind.

The consequences when a peace deal dies,

The scourge of War with victory blind.
