Staple Hill marks VJ Day

Because of the ongoing pandemic, the Staple Hill & District branch of The Royal British Legion decided to film and publish a service of remembrance and commemoration for the 75th anniversary of Victory over Japan.

The attached video is from our service held at the Staple Hill memorial in Page Park.
