Lodge Brothers Commemorate The Japanese Surrender Marking the end of World War 2 in the Pacific

September 5th, 2015

A candle was lit overnight in our East Molesey branch earlier this week to commemorate the ending of World War II with the quote from General Douglas MacArthur, who accepted Japan’s surrender on behalf of the United Nations on 2nd September 1945:

“It is my earnest hope and indeed the hope of all mankind that from this solemn occasion a better world shall emerge out of the blood and carnage of the past.”
