Bury remembers the sacrifices of the Fusiliers for VJ Day at 75 event
By Peter Magill @peter_magill Group Chief Reporter


An outdoor and indoor celebration staged by the Fusiliers Museum helped Bury to mark the 75th anniversary of VJ Day.

Veterans and campaigners had been limited, by social distancing, in what form their commemorations could take.

But a packed programme, witnessed online via their Facebook page, did justice to the sacrifices of the Lancashire Fusiliers and their comrades in the Far East.

The undoubted highlight was the premiere of The Forgotten Army, a museum-backed film on the Lancashire Fusiliers in Burma, detailing the exploits of the members of the 1st Battalion who went in as part of the Chindits force under Major General Orde Charles Wingate.

The film was projected onto the side of the museum building and is now available to watch their website.

Earlier the audience had been treated to readings by army cadets and performances by the official band of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.

Mayor of Bury, Cllr Tim Pickstone, read a poem by Burma soldier Dennis Leedham, which was composed while serving in the unforgiving jungle terrain.

And there were rousing renditions of timeless classics by Sarah Dennis, the Veterans Sweetheart. and Sarah Dennis and Lisa Lawton, the Northern Sopranos.

Outside the exterior of the museum was later bathed in red, white and blue for a short military ceremony, to honour those who fought in Burma, featuring the lowering of the regimental standards and the Last Post.

Later a musem spokesman said: A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our 75th anniversary of VJ Day.

It really was a special day and we hope you enjoyed the live videos. The building looked truly stunning.

Supporters of the museum, which has been forced to close during the lockdown, have this week launched a new range of t-shirts, to help keep the venue going, and are pulling together a virtual tour programme.
