There can't be many people left who have personal memories of VE-Day. After

Hyperbole has it's place but I don't think that was one of them. The
ONS estimated 2.4 per cent of the UK population was over 85. Even
after allowing for immigration that's over 1.5 million likely to have
memories of VE Day. And if you reckon 750,000 over 85s have probably
died in the past couple of months....
