Today, May 8, sees the country commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day and The Courier is bringing you special coverage to mark this historic event.
We have produced a special 24-page supplement looking back 75 years to when Germany surrendered after five years of bloody war.
The supplement, available to Courier subscribers only, includes:
- The poignant black-and-white pictures that captured the impromptu celebrations that broke out across our regions as news of Victory in Europe began to emerge.
- The tragedy of the merchant ship sunk by Germany off Anstruther just minutes before the war ended.
- The extraordinary story of the Rae brothers from Broughty Ferry who were awarded four Military Crosses for bravery.
- How Scotland’s favourite comic strip characters The Broons and Oor Wullie joined in the celebrations in their own wonderful way.
And that’s not all – on Saturday we will also publish a special replica edition from The Courier on VE Day itself, available to our subscribers only.
This special edition is a must-read as it captures the historic moment as it happened with reporting direct from the scene as the country took in the news of the victory that would bring the conflict to an end.
