Hove Town Hall

WWII Victory Parade 1945

By Peter Groves

This photo, of the WWII Victory Parade in Hove, is from the private collection of Reverend Anthony Martlew.  VE Day was the 8th May 1945, however I don't know if the formal parade was on the same day.

In the background the grand Church Road entrance to Hove Town Hall, decked in the Union Jack, can be seen.  The young 17 year-old Anthony Martlew, is the last drummer boy, bringing up the rear, far left.
