THE 69th Anniversary of Victory over Japan Day (VJ Day) will be marked at the Nicholson War Memorial, Leek, at 11am on Friday, August 15.
The Royal British Legion will hold a brief ceremony, as usual, and lay wreaths in memory of the fallen.
VJ Day marked the end of the Second World War after the fall of Japan. A number of local men were killed in action in the Far East.
The legion is encouraging the public to spare a few minutes.
