Celebrating the end of WWI
Peace Day, July 1919
|On the morning of the 19th July 1919, thousands gathered in London, having arrived overnight to officially celebrate and mark the end of World War 1. It was a spectacle never seen before, with nearly 15,000 troops taking part in a victory parade led by the Allied commanders Pershing, Foch and Haig who saluted the fallen comrades. Bands played, and the central parks of London hosted performances and entertained the huge crowds.
