We remember 70 years since the end of WWII

WORLD War II veterans will gather across the Gold Coast today, to mark 70 years since the Allied victory in the Pacific.

A service will be held at the Southport RSL at 11am, with hundreds of locals expected to attend.

More than 30 and wreaths will be laid at the RSL’s cenotaph on Scarborough Street, with war veterans, families and local politicians to pay their respects.


While at Currumbin RSL, a VP Day service will begin at 1130.

Events are happening across the country, with many to occur around 1pm, the time on August 15, 1945, when then Japan’s Emperor Hirohito told his people that his nation would surrender to the Allies.
