Through their eyes

The Second World War brought many changes to domestic life.  And Berkshire’s communities had to adjust.

Emergency operations began.  Family groups were split.  There were new instructions and routines to be followed.

Life did not feel normal but it would eventually return so.  And the celebration of VE Day, on 8 May 1945, was the beginning of that.

To mark the 75th anniversary of that day we have put together this virtual exhibition. 

We hope to show you something of Berkshire life during the Second World War and also how the county marked the War’s end.

If you would like to add to the stories we have chosen then please do leave a comment in our Memory Book.
