Gatehouse Commemoration of VE Day

The 8th May is the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe.  The Town was planning a number of events and activities to mark this occasion but of course with the current coronavirus crisis much of this has had to be cancelled or postponed.  Graham and Margaret Wright who run The Gatehouse Folk website have been working over the past months to collate a memorial document of the experiences of the people of Gatehouse during the war, both at home and away.  The material is now available to read online on The Gatehouse Folk website.  

 

The presentation contains many photographs from the time including many members of the community and it documents their activities during the war both at home and away on service.
