    By Roseborough & Rice

    Victory in Europe

    Toronto, ON
    May 8, 1945

    By Roseborough & Rice

    The Globe and Mail published this iconic photograph of a serviceman battered and bloodied by war yet still heroic under a huge banner headline which read, 'This is Victory', on its front page, Tuesday, May 8, 1945, to mark the Allies' victory in Europe during the closing days of World War II. The photo is accompanied by a few lines written by Canadian poet Robert Service: "When children's children shall talk of war as a madness that may not be; When we thank Our God for our grief today, and blazon from sea to sea. In the Name of the Dead the Banner of Peace - That will be Victory."
