NEWS Shopper is appealing for people with memories of VJ Day to come forward.

August 15 is the 60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and to mark this momentous occasion, we are planning a special edition.

We are looking for people who were serving in the Far East or those who were at home when they heard the news.

Did you lose friends and relatives in the fight against the Japanese? What was it like fighting in the jungle? Were you held prisoner of war?

If you have memories of VJ Day, call the newsdesk on 01689 885703 or email
