"Resistance V's appeared all over the country....The V campaign meant ordinary people could feel they were doing something, however symbolic, to protest against the Occupation." "The British radio has called on people to write V for victory everywhere, and they are all over the place, even on shop fronts. They are also written on blackboards, on tables -- everywhere. Even better, there's a new badge: a V made with two crossed pins and worn on the lapel. Yvette and I counted seventy-five in five minutes!...On the Rue d'Astorg, I scribbled a V on a German car. I heard the sound of boots behind me, and moved off quickly."
