London in Quotations: Her Majesty The Queen

We cheered the King and the Queen on the balcony and then walked miles through the streets. I remember lines of unknown people linking arms and walking down Whitehall, all of us just swept along on a tide of happiness and relief. I think it was one of the most memorable nights of my life.

One thought on “London in Quotations: Her Majesty The Queen”

  1. VE Day was joyful and memorable for many. Not so much for my family, who still had loved ones fighting in the Far East until VJ Day, and my dad’s older brother was a POW in Burma.
    Best wishes, Pete.
