LONDON Nike Air Max 95 UK , March 15 (Xinhua) -- World War Two veteran Eric Goldrein, 94, is to finally turn up at an end-of-war party, 70 years late.

Goldrein was serving in Italy with the British Armed Forces in the Royal Artillery when the news came through that war in Europe had ended.

He heard about street parties across Britain celebrating the victory against Adolf Hitler's Germany. As he was still on active service in mainland Europe he missed the parties back home.

Goldrein and his comrades had to make do with an impromptu party in a field in Italy.

"We celebrated in a field in Italy, the Signallers set up speakers playing music and the locals came out and joined in too, happy the war was finally over Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Pink UK ," he recalled.

"I heard about the street parties back home and now I'm looking forward to being part of the 70th Anniversary celebrations."

Goldrein, from the village of Hale, near Liverpool, was responding to today's announcement of three days of official celebrations and commemorations to mark the 70th anniversary in May of VE Day, Victory in Europe Day.

The three-day event was announced by politician William Hague, Leader of the House of Commons.

Commemorations include a major parade Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Blue UK , a service of thanksgiving and a star-studded music concert in central London, to street parties around Britain.

Hague said: "I am delighted to announce 3 days of celebrations, which will pay fitting tribute to those who did so much to defend this country and ensure victory in Europe."

"It is right we take time to reflect on the sacrifices made, not just by those in the Armed Forces, but by civilians such as Land Girls and those in Reserved Occupations and make sure the whole country has the chance to take part in commemorating this momentous anniversary and remembering those who gave so much for our freedom," said Hague.

Celebrations in London will be echoed by events across Britain with local communities encouraged to participate.

Vice Admiral Peter Wilkinson Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Green UK , National President of the Royal British Legion said: "We are honored to play our part in helping the nation mark 70 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe. The commemoration of this conflict, still in living memory, gives us the opportunity to salute the Second World War generation."

On May 8 there will be a Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in London, attended by the leaders of the main political parties, the Chief of the Defence Staff, members of the armed forces Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Grey UK , and representatives of Second World War veteran groups, together with armed forces charities.

The British public across Britain will be asked to observe a two-minutes silence at 3 p.m. the timing coinciding with the moment the then Prime Minister Winston Churchill broadcast to the nation in 1945. The nationwide 2-minute silence will be marked by firing guns from saluting stations in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast and by Royal Navy ships at sea.

Schools and communities across the country are being asked to organise parties or picnics to mark the anniversary.

On May 9 churches and cathedrals across Britain will ring their bells at 11 a.m..

On May 10 there will be a service at Westminster Abbey in London, followed by a parade of 2,000 people linked to the war Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Black UK , passing the balcony where Winston Churchill appeared before the crowds on VE Day after his famous speech to mark Victory in Europe. There will also be a flypast of current and historic aircraft from the Royal Air Force to conclude the celebrations.

ADDIS ABABA, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) -- The African Union (AU) has welcomed back the first group of health workers deployed under its mission to fight against Ebola in the most affected countries.

AU has deployed health workers to Ebola hardest-hit countries in West Africa under its mission known as the AU Support to the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa (ASEOWA).

ASEOWA health workers, who were the first to be deployed to fight against Ebola, returned from Liberia on 22 Feb. upon completion of their tour of duty, said a statement from AU on Wednesday.

The returnees were from Nigeria, Rwanda Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Red UK , Ethiopia, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo; and among them were doctors, hygienists and communications experts, including one trainer of other medical personnel in the treatment of Ebola patients.

The health workers have been welcomed back by Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Chairperson of the AU Commission.

AU Commissioner for Social Affairs, Mustapha Sidiki Kaloko Nike Air Max 98 Supreme White UK , AU Director of Social Affairs, Olawale Maiyegun, as well as ambassadors from the health workers' member states and a representative from Liberia were in attendance of the meeting organized to welcome the health workers in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

It was a unique event- the first time ever that the AU had welcomed back heroines and heroes in the fight against Ebola, and, without any infections among the health workers Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Silver UK , said the statement.

Dlamini-Zuma thanked the health workers for their pioneering role and assured them that AU is determined to defeat Ebola.

"The African Union will stay the course until the affected countries are declared Ebola free. We are very happy that you undertook this mission," she told the returnees.

All returnees were awarded certificates of service in recognition of their contribution to the fight against Ebola and their selfless dedication.

A representative of the health workers, Dr. Abdou Sebushishe, outlined the impact that ASEOWA is having on the ground.

"When we went in September 2014, there were very few Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs). At first people preferred to go to other aid agencies when they contracted Ebola. The mortality rate was very high and there were dead bodies around. But, in November 2014 we opened our own ETU in collaboration with the Cubans and the Swedish. We had 60 confirmed cases of Ebola and we releaIf you're an athlete or even . Cheap Cavaliers Jerseys   Cheap Bulls Jerseys   Cheap Bucks Jerseys   Cheap Thunder Jerseys   Cheap Washington Wizards Jerseys   Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys   Cheap Phoenix Suns Jerseys   Cheap San Antonio Spurs Jerseys   Wholesale Kings Jerseys   Wholesale Toronto Raptors Jerseys
