Edward Chapman - End of war celebrations

Running time
39 sec
Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


There was big celebration in Brisbane when the war was over. Down in Queen Street you couldn't move. Everybody was dancing and shaking.

You had to hold on to everything, keep your hat on or they'd pull it off you and take it away.

I joined in the fun carrying on like an idiot but there was nothing bad about it. Everybody was so happy the war was over.
