MP urges World War Two veterans to take part in VE Day and VJ Day events


MEON Valley MP Flick Drummond is urging Second World War veterans to contact the Royal British Legion if they want to take part in this year’s 75th anniversary VE and VJ Day commemorations.

Personnel, both military and civilian, interested in attending events are being asked to register and all costs will be met by the legion and its partners.

“I very much hope veterans across the county will take part in these important commemorations as they are the stars of the show,” said Flick.

“I’m really pleased the legion will be covering all the costs because it will make it much easier for these men and women to take part.”

Veterans can be of British, Commonwealth or Allied origin. Further information can be found here https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/remembrance/remembrance-e…

Registration closes for VE Day veterans on February 17 and for VJ Day veterans on March 31.
