Sunday, May 8, 2022 was the anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE-Day) marking the end of WWII in Europe. A special ceremony organized by John Hall was held at the grave of Sir Winston Churchill which is located at St Martin's Church, Bladon, Oxfordshire, England. On hand were military veterans from the British Parachute Regiment and the 17/21st Lancers. The Royal Air Force was represented by Air Vice Marshall Malcolm Brecht. Several members of the Churchill family including Randolph Churchill, Winston's great-grandson, also attended. The CSOT was represented by President Jim Drury.
Wreaths were laid at the grave. A lone bagpiper played 'Mist Covered Mountains' and buglers from The Rifles regiment played 'Last Post'.
At the conclusion there was a fly-over by an RAF Spitfire and Hurricane that actually took part in the Battle of Britain in 1940.
