VE Day celebration at the Vincennes Estate, Carnac Street, West Norwood. The estate was named after the resistance heroes of Vincennes, France, including Violette Szabo, a Lambeth girl, and Lilian Rolfe, whose father lived in Knatchbull Road. The VE Day celebration in May 1995 was attended by the Mayor of Vincennes and local councillors. The Mayor of Lambeth, Councillor Pauline Watson, is seen here addressing the gathering. The flag in the background is the Cross of Loraine of the French Free Forces.
