On 15 August 1945, the most destructive conflict in human history finally ended, with Victory over Japan Day (VJ Day). Following on from Victory in Europe (VE) Day on 8 May 1945, it concluded a conflict that had consumed much of the world.
This photographic exhibition, featuring images drawn from our archives, is a record of that momentous time, when the nation celebrated, and our Air Force began the gradual transition from war to peace.
