This photograph is one of two sent to me soon after the 75th anniversary of VJ Day by a cousin of mine. Her father, Air Commodore Gilbert Bartholomew, was present at the ceremony, representing the Royal Air Force (he is marked with the small 'X'). The ceremony was held in the entrance lobby area of Government House on 12 September 1945.
