A ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of Victory in Japan (VJ) day was held at the FEPOW memorial in Town Quay Park on 15th August 2020. You can see a short video of part of the ceremony at the Southampton City Council website.
The memorial plaque, which is a national monument, commemorates the repatriation of men, women and children who survived Far East captivity. It lists, in order of their arrival, all the ships that brought them safely back to Southampton.
