Description

WWII – Japanese Surrender copy of the Pacific Post, the Daily Newspaper of the British Pacific Fleet for August 16th 1945 announcing the Japanese surrender, a little creased and browned consistent with age but otherwise good. The moment that WWII finally came to an end, though this edition also reports on the back page that work was already under way to restore the Oval cricket ground – how wonderfully British !
