VE and VJ Day were commemorated at a tea party at Selby Meadow community garden in Uckfield yesterday.
Red, white and blue balloons and bunting adorned a marquee and visitors waved flags as they were entertained with music from the 40s, with singing and stories told by Ray Whiteway-Roberts.
Duncan Bennett, a town councillor and resident from Framfield Road, was there wearing the uniform of a technical sergeant from the 17th armoured engineers battallion, second armoured division.
Duncan is part of the infamous Kelly’s Heroes re-enactment team who put on Hollywood style re-enactments at shows across the country including War and Peace and one at Headcorn aerodrome.
He was joined by Peter Marshall from Sutton, Surrey, who was wearing the uniform of an RAF squadron leader and who had also brought a jeep along for the occasion.
