Abstract

This paper charts the course of the V-for-victory campaign in the occupied British Channel Islands, set within its European context, from 1940-45, examining the manifestations of the V-sign in a material form, and how this changed with time. It highlights the use of the Vas both an open and a hidden symbol of resistance, and the role it played both in "fighting" the German forces behind their backs and in boosting morale among the local population, even after the appropriation of the symbol by the occupiers.
