A short service of prayers and readings that you may wish to use today or later to mark and commemorate the 75th anniversary of VJ Day. There is no order of service to download; instead I have guided you through the responses and prayers during the service. The Far East campaign is often called the Forgotten War and those who served in it to some extent felt forgotten too. It was a difficult and particularly nasty conflict which left mental and physical scars on many who survived. Now is our opportunity to remember and not forget.
