VETERANS will lead the commemorations as Wolverhampton marks the 69th anniversary of VE Day today (Thursday).
They will join with civic dignitaries and members of the public to mark the anniversary of the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany to the Allies – an event which heralded the end of the Second World War in Europe.
The central branch of the City of Wolverhampton Royal British Legion and the Ex-Service Council will hold a service of remembrance and lay wreaths at the Cenotaph, St Peter's Square, at 11.30am. The service will begin with a parade of standards and veterans to the Cenotaph, followed by prayers, the Kohima homily and exhortation and the Last Post.
