V.E. 1945 - a Memory of Beddgelert.

How on earth did I remember this morning (3rd May 2020]that I was there for a celebratory tea. V.E 1945?
I checked whether there had ever been an establishment named Boomerang and to my surprise found this photograph.
My mother, now 102 has no memory of it.
I even remembered my dress, a pale primrose cotton printed with tiny red v’s with puff sleeves
How old was I? I was born in July 1942 in Cwmcloch Isaf Beddgelert and my father was still in Italy having arrived there from Egypt with the 8th army.
I cannot believe that a memory has been stored for all these years.
