V.J.DAY commemorates the day that Japan surrendered to the allies in World War II. Some soldiers who were engaged in combat in the Far East, did not come home until 1947, and we should remember that some never came home at all.
Although we cannot publicly commemorate V.J.Day this year, perhaps we should pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by all those who served this country in any way in the Far East. More »

We particularly remember Walter Fergus Talbot on this day, a Syston man who fought and survived in Burma but sadly lost his life in an aircraft accident after being posted to India.

You can see details of all the Syston men and one woman who died while on active service in WW2 on the Parish Church and Town Council's websites.
