THE 75th anniversary of Japan's surrender which brought about the end of World War II will be marked with a ceremony in Inverness later this month.

Former military personnel will gather at the city's war memorial in Cavell Gardens on August 15 to commemorate Victory in Japan (VJ) Day.

The simple ceremony, which starts at 11am, will include laying of wreaths and there will also be a piper.

It is being organised by the Inverness branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland.

Vice president Joe Davidson said the branch was keen to hear from any veterans from the conflict in the Far East, which continued for another three months after Victory in Europe Day, or their families.

He can be contacted on 07774 248798.
