Mr Gaunt's VE Day Craft

8 May 1945

WW2

Victory in Europe Day

 

 

Designing a VE Day Medal 

 

In World War One, this medal was presented to all British soldiers who fought in combat zones across Europe. It has since become a symbol of pride and remembrance for our country, a way to remember those that lost their lives and those that risked everything to keep us safe. 

 

 

The medals were made of bronze as this was relatively cheap after the war but can last a very long time. They have been kept by many families after their relatives have died, having them framed or presented somewhere in their home.  

 

VE Day celebrates the end of WW2 when the Allies (including us) formally accepted the German's unconditional surrender on the 8th May 1945. Your task is to create a medal to celebrate that in the same way as the one above celebrates World War 1.
