When you look back on the defining moments of World War Two, the 8th May 1945 (better known as VE Day) is one of the most significant of all.
On May 8th 1945 the United Kingdom saw the beginning of the end of World War Two; the conflict that consumed Europe and reshaped its future forever.
As Prime Minister Winston Churchill took to the radio to announce the surrender of German forces, the nation felt immense relief that the strain of total war was almost over.
Celebrations erupted throughout the country, with more than one million people celebrating in streets parties.
Crowds congregated in Trafalgar Square and outside Buckingham Palace, where King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, accompanied by Winston Churchill, appeared before the cheering crowds.
75 years on, the celebrations have not been forgotten and that extraordinary day remains etched in our history. In honour of this special anniversary, here at Collectology we have curated a range of special , strictly limited VE Day collectables that no collector can afford to miss.
Of all our collectables ranges, this is definitely the one I am most proud of because of its enormous historic importance. Here is my run-down of the range and exactly what makes these pieces so special and so highly sought-after…
