Manx veterans of the Burma Campaign met at their memorial in the Arboretum at St John’s on Sunday on the 70th anniversary of the Victory over Japan.

The occasion was the last time that the veterans will parade as a branch of the Burma Star Association. It will disband after the 2015 Christmas lunch.
