Alfie Elliot mills about with his tankard
Brome Village VE/VJ Celebrations - 4th September 2005
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.
