After the Japanese surrendered in 1945 many Victory Parades were held, in Malaya as well as other parts of the world, to mark the occasion. The largest was said to have taken place in London, on 8th June 1946. Our featured photograph today is that of the Army Cadet Force of St Michael’s Institution, marching through the streets of Ipoh. We believe this parade was held on 6th January 1946.
I’m sure some of you can guess WHICH famous street in Ipoh this is!
