BRITISH LEGION - All surviving WW2 Veterans FREE rememberance


The Legion is on a mission to take all surviving WW2 veterans back to where they served.

The Royal British Legion wants to take all surviving veterans of the Seconmd 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
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.

Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer, said: “I’m delighted that we can
continue to support those who want to return with The Royal British Legion to the
countries where they served. We have committed over £5 million of Libor funds to help
those who fought for our freedom to return to pay their respects and safeguard the
memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.”


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!
