EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print titled "Slindon Children's Victory Tea Party - 6 September 1945" we are transported back to a moment of pure joy and relief. The image captures a group shot of smiling women and children, their faces beaming with happiness as they attend a long-awaited celebration. This powerful snapshot serves as a testament to the end of war, marking the victorious day when peace was finally restored. The scene unfolds in the quaint village of Slindon, nestled within the heart of West Sussex. Here, amidst picturesque landscapes and tight-knit communities, residents came together to commemorate VJ Day – Victory over Japan – on that fateful September day in 1945. The atmosphere is one of jubilation and camaraderie; it radiates from every face present. This remarkable photograph is part of the George Garland Collection housed at the West Sussex Record Office. It stands as an invaluable historical artifact, preserving not only memories but also emotions felt during that pivotal time in history. As we gaze upon these radiant smiles frozen in time, we are reminded of the resilience and strength exhibited by ordinary people who endured unimaginable hardships throughout World War II. Let us cherish this image for what it represents: unity, hope, and triumph over adversity. May it serve as a poignant reminder that even in our darkest moments, there is always room for compassion and community spirit to prevail.
