UK NEWS: Queen Elizabeth pays tribute to 75 years of defeat by WW2 of Japan

LONDON (UK) – Queen Elizabeth paid tribute to the soldiers’ 75th anniversary of VJ Day, marking Japan’s victory and the end of World War II, as she commemorates the tragedy of the war and the joy of its end.

Japan signed its commitment to surrender on August 15, 1945, after atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States. The emperor of Japan has expressed “deep remorse” during the previous world war.

Elizabeth, 94, said she would never forget the dramatic events and the immense relief that came from the end of the war.

“Prince Philip and I have joined many around the world in sending our gratitude to the men and women from the Commonwealth, as well as the United Nations, who are fighting for the freedom we value today.”

Elizabeth, a teenager at the time of the war, learned to drive military trucks and to be a mechanic while working for the Auxiliary Territorial Service for Women. He was in Buckingham Palace when a bomb exploded in September 1940.

Her husband, Philip, who had served in the British army during the war and was in the dump of the HMS Whelp in Tokyo Bay when the Japanese contract was signed, will show off a photo showing that live veterans will be shown on big screens across locations across the country.

His son, heir to the throne, Prince Charles, will lead a two-minute national silence at the National Memorial Arboretum in central England while his grandson Prince William enters a special BBC TV program.
