Kimpton Church of England Primary School celebrated the 60th anniversary of the end of World War 11 with a commemorative afternoon.
They asked back to the school some of those who attended it during the war, as well as local residents who remembered the war. The children asked them questions about the war, which added to their understanding of what happened.
"Caroline Shirley organised the event very well, and there were many wartime posters round the walls which broughtt back memories of the 1940's.
Many of the children at Kimpton have parents serving in the Armed Forces, so I reminded them that, while there will hopefully be no more wars like the last one, we still have to combat terrorism and help keep the peace on the world's trouble spots."
Sir George told the children he was born during the war, when the only food available was what could be grown locally. "I think I was seven before I saw a banana."
