During the first year of World War II, on 1st July 1940, German troops arrived to take the surrender of Jersey and for the next five years Jersey, Guernsey, Sark and Alderney became the only part of the British Isles to be occupied during the Second World War. On 8th May 1945, German forces surrendered and the war in Europe ended. The next day Royal Navy destroyer HMS Beagle arrived off the coast of Jersey and accepted the surrender of the occupying forces. Liberation Day is celebrated each year in Jersey on 9th May and includes a series of official ceremonies. Six stamps portray key moments of a contemporary celebration of Liberation Day.
