RBL taking surviving veterans on WW2 tour for free

09/02/2018 10:43

The Royal British Legion wants to take all surviving veterans of the Second World War on a free Remembrance tour to where they served during their time in the Armed Forces.

Tours will take place throughout 2018 and will give WW2 veterans the chance to meet up with fellow veterans and pay their respects at battlefield sites, cemeteries and memorials.  The Treasury is enabling these free tours to be funded by Libor fines, and will enable the veterans to return with a family member and carer.

No database exists of WW2 veterans who are still alive today, so the Legion is asking the public to help us make sure every surviving veteran can take part.  If you’re a grandchild, neighbour or carer and know someone who fought in WW2, please tell them about this opportunity and encourage them to sign up!
