On the 7th of May 1945, Admiral Karl Dönitz, leader of the Flensburg Government which followed Hitler’s suicide, signed the act of military surrender in Rheims, bringing an end to some of the darkest days of conflict the world has ever seen.

75 years have passed since this monumental turning point in history. “Victory in Europe”.  Approximately 75 million people lost their lives during the war; this consisted of around 20 million military personnel and 40 million civilians. In the United Kingdom, entire villages lost the majority of their male population, and the impact of human loss on our country alone was to be felt for years to come.

UKIP will always be required to ensure our service personnel and veterans are defended and have an all-important voice. UKIP will always honour the memories of those who served both past and present, including those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and laid down their lives so you could live yours. Our respect for those people, their families and friends will never wavier.

We tend to forget all too soon the things we thought we could never forget. Please take a moment this Friday to remember the lives, the sacrifices, the losses and the devastation World War II inflicted on its 75th anniversary.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
