    Since you mentioned VE day, can someone explain why this is celebrated on 8th May in the west and on 9th May in former USSR?

    BTW nice pictures. I haven't seen them before either.

    Very nice photos, thanks for sharing!

    In post #9, 7th photo - Troops marching scene, in the background, there appears to be a sign, does that say "SHELL", as in the oil company Shell?
