Burma Star.....the final Belfast Parade on the 65th Anniversary of VJ Day- 15th August 2010
15th August 2010, the 65 Anniversary of VJ Day, marks the Final Parade of the Burma Star Association in Belfast. The event took place at the Cenotaph Belfast City Hall. The winding up of the Association is due to declining numbers and ill-health of the members.

The day was tinged with sadness yet celebration as members came together, to parade, the give thanks and to remember their fallen comrades.

This set of photographs was taken by VELVYN RIDDELL and they capture the atmosphere of the parade, service and the comradeship of the veterans as they are entertained by the Lord Mayor of Belfast.

This was indeed an historic Day which will be long remembered by the veterans, their families and friends and the large crowd attending the service.
