A look back at this year’s VE Day 2020, a socially distanced affair because of the coronavirus lockdown.

This picture of flags was sent in by Valerie and Doreen in Stebbing.

The English and Canadian flags honour their English father and grandfather who served in the RAF with Canadian pilots.

The Scottish and Gibraltar flags were there to honour their Scottish father-in-law/grandfather who served in the Royal Engineers and built the runway in Gibraltar.

The Union Flag in the window is nearly 150 years old, dating from 1874.
