Britain: a United country to celebrate the end of World War II

A thousand war veterans attended in another celebration of 70 years of the end of World War II, in the United Kingdom.

The religious celebration, under the theme of Thanksgiving for reconciliation and unity, was followed by a parade in which participated the veterans. The March began at Westminster Abbey and toured various parts of the capital London, among them the British Parliament, the parade from Buckingham Palace and the place where Winston Churchill appeared to the crowd and made his famous victory speech.

The largest British bomber in World War II, Lancaster, should have participated in the celebrations but ended up on the ground after a fire in the engine.
