The VE Day 75th anniversary has been made a bank holiday here in the UK. With lockdown in force, much has been cancelled... the street parties, the vintage singers who had been fully booked for a year or more. People are actually going for it, nonetheless. Bunting is going up around the roads, flags - there's a Royal Marines flag flying just a few doors down. Tables and chairs (with tablecloths) are appearing on front lawns. The best china will be coming out. The sun is shining. Street parties, in lockdown, with social distancing in force. This is perhaps a little bit of history in the making too.
