To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day The Berkshire Record Office has created Through Their Eyes, a virtual exhibition.The exhibition showcases Berkshire life during the Second World War, and how the country marked the War's end. They also have a Memory Book section where you can leave a comment with your own stories.
