Second World War

Mapping the Far East campaign

VJ75: Never Forgotten

VE Day, on 8 May 1945, marked the end of the Second World War in Europe. But many thousands of Armed Forces personnel were still engaged in bitter fighting in the Far East.

In this video, the National Museum of the Royal Navy, the National Army Museum, the Royal Air Force Museum and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission take you on a tour of the fighting. So vast was the geographic spread of this campaign that British Commonwealth forces and their allies covered thousands of miles.

This is part of our VJ75: Never Forgotten series, marking the 75th anniversary of VJ (Victory over Japan) Day.
