VE DAY

8 May, 2020

As you think of Victory in Europe it is worth a flick through the pages put together by LBHF Archivist.

Also the Flikr collection.

There is an article on the parks during and after the war.

As you would expect it only gets the briefest of mentions in the last pages of our book Fulham in the Second World War.
