That this House notes that Scotland’s public commemorations of the 75th anniversary of VE Day will be held online on 8 May; understands that due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, plans for the landmark anniversary – which were to include a parade, public concert and reception – will now take place online, with a video message of thanks from the First Minister of Scotland and a concert, in addition to the service and silence; acknowledges Legion Scotland and Poppy Scotland, in partnership with the Scottish Government, for their outstanding work in helping people across Scotland come together virtually to give thanks to our World War Two generation; and honours the service and dedication of all those who helped secure peace 75 years ago, including those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
