Product Description

VE Day 1000 PC Gibsons Jigsaw Puzzle

On Monday 7th May 1945, following six years of war, the nation and indeed the whole world erupted into scenes of jubilation following the unconditional surrender by Germany’s Gereral Jodl. The war in Europe was over and is displayed beautifully in this Gibsons Jigsaw Puzzle .

Within minutes of the announcement, may thousands of people gathered on the streets of Great Britain to celebrate the event.  Bonfires were lit, street parties took place and in London over 50,000 people filled the streets between Trafalgar Square and Big Ben as three Lancaster bombers flew overhead, dropping red and green flares.

The Royal Family together with Winston Churchill came out onto the balcony at Buckingham Palace to be greeted and cheered by the waiting crowds.  That evening, two searchlights made a giant V above St Paul’s Cathedral as the celebrations continued well into the night.  the following day May 8th was declared VE Day and a national holiday, to officially celebrate Victory in Europe.

About the Artist: Kevin Walsh

Kevin was born in Castleford in the heart of former industrial West Riding of Yorkshire, from the same town as famous sculptor Henry Moore. During his degree, where he studied illustration at the Wakefield College of Art, Kevin became well known for his aircraft paintings and became a member of the Guild of Aviation Artists.

In recent years he has become increasingly known for a much wider variety of subjects, such as landscapes, transport and city life, although many of these subjects focus greatly on nostalgia and can be found one a diverse range of products, from greeting cards to biscuit tins.

Many of his original oil paintings can be seen at the Headrow Gallery in Leeds.
