Brome Village VE/VJ Celebrations, The Village Hall, Brome, Suffolk - 4th September 2005

As a quick stop-off on the way back from Southwold, and prior to a BBs gig in the evening, Nosher stops off at Brome's VE/VJ Day celebrations for an hour or so. DH and Marc are already set up with beer, and the ever-photogenic Alfie Elliot is milling about. A bit later, the Vicar arrives, followed by Peter West who was to give a talk on WW2 history. In attendance is the anti-aircraft truck "Claire", which we'd seen a few months back at Debach airfield's open day. There's even a quick but noisy flypast from Maurice Hammond's Stearman.
