Found 31st Mar
some of the breaks are also free for family members/carers.
--------

Remembrance Travel is trying to find all surviving veterans of WWII to participate in funded LIBOR Tours of Remembrance to where they served.

The Royal British Legion has been running LIBOR funded tours for Normandy veterans for the past four years and thanks to additional LIBOR funding is now able to widen the tours to all veterans of WWII.

The Treasury are enabling a series of tours which are being funded by the LIBOR fines, allowing a WWII veteran to return and pay their respects to fallen comrades. In addition, a family member and a carer would be able to accompany the veteran to support and share the experience.

The tours will take place from spring to autumn as numbers demand and will give WWII veterans – now mostly in their 90s - the chance to meet up with fellow veterans, visit significant battlefield sites, cemeteries and memorials. The tours will be led by an official Royal British Legion guide

What a fantastic gesture, we should be giving something back to these individuals who went through hell and back.

Most of us wont ever know or feel, what these people experienced fighting for their through for their country, time is running out to praise them. Great idea, wish I could double the heat for the poster.

Something worth voting hot for. Thanks for posting.
100% heat from me .
Take a bow all Sir and Madam who fought to keep us safe.. we all die but you all died for a purpose 🙏
Amazing. Needs more widely publicised.
My dad was there France and Belgium before the Germans push to Dunkirk,forward petroleum supply unit RASC, used to mention standing on roof in Belgium with Bren gun,firing at Stukas. Got struck down by mumps just before the Germans push and invalided out to UK,most of his comrades killed. He died 6 years ago aged 89
What a thoughtful thing to do
Aasmah Mir and Suzy Klein talk to stand-up comedian Arthur Smith about his new act examining his father Syd's experiences in World War Two and as a police constable.

Syd fought in north Africa, was in an Italian POW camp, was forced to work in mines in Germany and ended up in Colditz, where he was liberated by the US army.
