The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles occupied by the German Army during the Second World War. Life was very tough for the remaining islanders ( many were hurriedly evacuated) but one day after VE Day, 7 May 1945 (victory in Europe) the islands were liberated.
Two years ago, very early in my blogging days, I posted a Liberation Day themed cake which I had made for a friend who was throwing a party. So here is a picture of the cake bearing a replica of the Guernsey flag.
It's a dull cool day today with the prospect of rain but that won't dampen 70th anniversary spirits- Happy liberation Day!
