Public urged to remember VE Day by placing a ‘Tommy’ in their windows

People in lockdown are being urged to show their support for this year’s coronavirus-hit VE Day commemorations by placing a specially designed image of a Second World War soldier in their windows. Restrictions on movement and social distancing requirements have led to the cancellation of many plans to mark the 75th anniversary of victory in Europe on May 8. To help the public still mark the date, armed forces charity Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) has launched its “Tommy in the window” campaign, producing specially designed figures of soldiers.
