St. Andrew's Douzaine, Guernsey

Liberation Day

Liberation Day 2018

On the 9th May each year Guernsey celebrates the Liberation of the Island from the German occupation that ended on the 9th May 1945.

At a recent meeting of the Douzaine, the dedicated team from the Douzaine who have worked tirelessly year after year, arranging Liberation Day Celebrations in our Parish, expressed a wish to take a bit of a break from this task in order to re-charge their batteries and also spend a little more time celebrating Liberation Day around the Island with their families.

So as things stand, there will be no organised St Andrew’s Parish Celebration of Liberation Day in 2018 but no doubt, the Last Post will still be a hive of activity on this special day.

If anyone wishes to share their photos taken during the 2018 Liberation Day celebrations on this Website, please submit them to (preferably in jpg format, at a resolution of 1024×768).  If you have any difficulties manipulating photos or, are pressed for time, just drop a memory card or disk into the Constables’ Office – attaching your name and address etc., so that we can return them to you.
