Friday Fun Film: V-E Day 70 Years Ago

Silent film:
U.S. soldiers in England read newspapers headlining Germany's surrender. Loudspeakers broadcast the news of the surrender to Londoners. Shows crowds in Trafalgar Square.
Members of Parliament, including Winston Churchill, walk in a ceremonial procession as Parliament is opened. Servicemen and servicewomen enter churches and pray. Soldiers and girls wave from buses and drink toasts to victory. The King and Queen appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Citizens dance in the streets."
