    I find it rather a pity that my picture published by Susan came out badly ….BUT……is there no one amongst us who can rectify

    the situation and make some form of comment……where are all the computer experts …?

    Thought that you could fix the problem- thanks a lot and I am sure that Susan will also give you her thanks-

    I am fine but still can't travel too far which is a nuisance as I miss my annual visit to Europe etc but thankfully still

    We thoroughly enjoyed watching the VE day concert and parade on tv. I recorded the concert so my daughters could watch it too.

    Ron - my husband and I thought your interview was very well done.

    Tom - great photos, very smart!

    Finally received a copy of the Italian TV interview I made.

    As with all the interviews I have ever done the filming took over an hour but was cut down almost to a vanishing point, in this case 2 minutes 20 seconds :)

    I made a few screen dumps and placed them in the Photo Gallery here:

    Planning for peace
    In spring 1945, war with Germany was drawing to a close.

    While the British government was dealing with a country in the grip of rationing and cities ravaged by bombs, some ministers had to turn their thoughts to how people could celebrate victory after six years of war.

    I imagine they started by blowing the dust off files from November 1918
