VE Day 1945

A fantastic photograph kindly donated to us by Derek Batchelor (via Hazel Durant) who was resident in the old Avenue Terrace which was accessed by an alley from Villiers Road. This is a photo of Derek sat on a neighbour’s knee at the VE street party in Villiers Road. On that day in 1945, Derek was the youngest in the road and the lady he is sat on was the eldest. We don’t know who she is so if anyone recognises her please get in touch…
