One of the biggest events in living history to take place this week was, of course, VE Day.

And along with every other city, town and village across the land Market Rasen had its share of celebratory events, as the picture above shows.

The Rasen Mail of the day reported on the dances and street parties taking place and how the whole town was decorated to mark the occasion.

“Union Jacks fluttered over every shop and every house in the main and side streets and here and there were to be seen also the flags of the United Nations, chiefly the Stars and Stripes of the United States and one or two Soviet emblems.”
