Members of Exmouth’s Royal British Legion branch gathered to mark 75 years since VJ Day.
On August 15, 1945, Japan officially surrendered effectively ending World War Two.
To mark 75 years since that date, members of the Exmouth Royal British Legion Branch gathered – in a socially-distanced way - at the war memorial in The Strand to remember those who died in the conflict.
Bagpipes played as the Royal British Legion Standard was lowered and a wreath laid on the war memorial.
