The British Legion is calling upon veterans of the Second World War to register to be part of the nation’s commemorations. The commemorations will be held to mark the 75th anniversaries of VE Day, which is on the 8th May, and VJ Day, on 15th August, and they are calling on military and civilian veterans to get involved.
The British Legion said:
“Veterans can be of British, Commonwealth or Allied origin and all costs for their attendance will be met by The Royal British Legion and its partners. Further information can be found here https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/remembrance/remembrance-events
“Registration closes for VE Day veterans on 17 February and for VJ Day veterans on 31 March.”
Anneliese Dodds, MP for Oxford East said:
“It is so important that our veterans of the Second World War, both military and civilian, get the recognition they deserve. I hope that anyone reading the Oxford Mail who falls into that category can register with the Royal British Legion. The 75th anniversaries of VE and VJ day will be so important and it is crucial that those who lived through those events are able to take part to the full”
