75th Anniversary of VJ Day


On the 15th of August 2020, The Bay came together to remember all those who took part in the far east combat, join us as we travel around the bay laying wreaths to remember them all, finishing of at Christ Church Sandown for special blessing and the raising of a special VJ Day flag. Please Note: due to a problem with our external microphones. We only had access to the on board camera mics, we apologize for the poor sound quality.
