In the sixties I used to get flashed the Peace sign ( V as in victory
not the drawn one ) when I was riding my motorcycle. I never thought
about how it got adapted from the V - Victory sign of my fathers
generation to the symbol of Hi/Peace in the sixties. Does anyone know
how/when/whom started to use it that way?
