VE Day 75th Anniversary, Fri 8 May

Marking the end of the war in Europe and the Battle of the Atlantic, the VE Day 75 Anniversary celebrates the success of Allied Forces and reflects/remembers the sacrifice of those Naval Service and Merchant seafarers who lost their lives in the Second World War. Sheerness and Chatham Docks had a key role in the war effort so Peel Ports London Medway will be supporting the campaign by inviting all vessels alongside on 8th May 2020 to:
• Sound ship’s horn at 1500 (to last no longer than one minute)
• Shine search/spot lights into the night sky at 2130 until 2135 (time adjusted from the original King’s Speech in 1945 to achieve maximum effect in darker skies across the UK)
