World War Two photographs are being hunted by Slough Borough Council to fill a banner for the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe - VE Day in May.

Residents are asked to search their photo albums or boxes in the loft to find photographs of their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, or just the town as a whole from WWII to help create the banner.

The event will take place on the weekend of May 9 and 10, at Slough High Street and Town Square where the council plans to give pride of place to the banner, filled with photos of Slough.

Councillor Balvinder S Bains, cabinet member for inclusive growth and skills, said: “We are proud to be taking part in national celebrations on the 75th anniversary of VE Day but we are more proud of the contribution Slough and its residents of the time made to the war effort which led to that victory.

“Even if you are resident now but weren’t then and you or your family contributed to the Allied effort in WWII please send us your photos so we can honour those who made that victory possible.”

Anyone with photos should email them to or if you have printed photographs that need to be made digital to take part, call events on 01753 875194 to arrange assistance.
