Commemoration of VJ Day
A petition has been started to establish a national day commemorating the significance of 15th August 1945.
Thousands of servicemen were held as Far East prisoners of war from 1941-1945, caught up in a conflict that endured long after the celebrations for VE Day. The contribution of those who had the misfortune to be held as pows, many of whom did not survive, deserves to be remembered nationally.
We really need more signatures (10,000 by 17th July) to ensure a response from the Government. We have about 6,900 so far so it could be do-able with your help.
The petition can be found on the link belowhttps://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/236760
