Join us for the Bank Holiday on Friday 8th May 2020 for a full programme of events at the Ross Band Stand in Edinburgh, Princess Street Gardens.

On the 8th of May 1945 millions of people rejoiced in the news that Germany had surrendered and war was finally over.  The date became know as Victory in Europe Day (VE Day).

In towns and cities across the world, people marked the victory with street parties, dancing and singing. 

On the 8th of May 2020, Legion Scotland, in partnership with Scottish Government and The City of Edinburgh will be welcoming WW2 veterans to a special commemoration in the Capital City. The date has been declared a National Bank Holiday across the UK so this provides the opportunity for us to ask the nation to remember and to come together to commemorate the service and sacrifice made by the men and women of the Second World War generation.  

Full details of the event will be provided shortly but if you have an enquiry or you know of any WW2 veterans who would like to participate please contact Brian Ward on 0131 550 1562 or email [email protected]
