I was christened on VE Day 1945

I was christened at Sherborne Abbey on VE Day 1945. As we emerged from the abbey all the bells rang out. My father, a Fleet Arm Arm pilot and CO of 762 NAS, thought it was a wonderful thing to hear the bells rung for a tiny child. He then discovered they we ringing for Victory in Europe! I still believe they were rung for me.
