VE DAY CELEBRATION, VINCENNES ESTATE, WEST NORWOOD
VE Day celebration at the Vincennes Estate, Carnac Street, West Norwood. The sundial and memorial plaque were erected in memory of the resistance heroes of Vincennes, France, including Violette Szabo, a Lambeth girl, and Lilian Rolfe, whose father lived in Knatchbull Road. Both were shot at Ravensbruck concentration camp shortly before the war ended. After being vandalised the sundial and plaque were restored and re-dedicated during the VE Day celebration in May 1995, attended by the Mayor of Vincennes and local councillors. The flag in the centre is the Cross of Loraine of the French Free Forces.Ref: SP3237/9
