John Cummings – Coley

I was 4 years old when VE day happened and I must have been either staying with or visiting my grandmother in Lorne Street (off the Oxford Road) on VE Day because I have this vivid memory of going out of my grandmother’s front door and seeing all these trestle tables along the middle of the road laden with more food and drink than I had ever seen before.  When I asked what was going on, I was told that the war was over and everyone was celebrating.
