REMEMBERING VJ DAY

To mark VJ Day 75, the ROYAL BRITISH LEGION working with the GURKHA MUSEUM and the ROYAL GURKHA RIFLES created this podcast and accompanying film to tell the Gurkha story of the Burma campaign in the words of those who were there.

On 15 August 1945, Japan surrendered finally bringing the Second World War to an end. War in Europe had ended in the May, but in Burma bitter fighting continued and the Gurkhas, with their expertise in jungle warfare, played an important role.

With especial thanks to Lt Col JP Cross and Buddhiman Gurung for permission to use excerpts from their interviews with veterans in GURKHAS AT WAR.

With the Museum and Year 12 students from Oxford Spires Academy, we produced a podcast series that explores and challenges the colonial legacy of the Museum’s collections, considering in particular why labelling matters, and how to reinterpret the Museum’s collections for the 21C.
