Hi folks, This week saw hugely emotional scenes as Auschwitz survivors returned to mark 75 years since the camp was liberated by Allied forces. No political comment to be made here, but it really is vital that we never forget both the suffering of the victims and the sacrifice and bravery of the liberators.   […]

It seems like ages since we last wrote to you and so much has happened in that time – rumblings of conflict in Iran, Trump facing impeachment, Australia burning, Brexit confirmed for the end of this month. We'd take up all your time if […]

Hi folks, Having spent the last few days talking to fascinating people at the International Security Expo in London, we’ve been mercifully spared the endless election coverage.

Hi folks, With all the headlines taken up with the General Election, will any of the main parties unify the country and get us out of the Brexit stalemate? Will any of them deliver on promises to take better care of veterans? Should we hold our breath on either?  Some other headlines that caught our […]

Hi folks, They say if it's not broken then don't fix it but they definitely don't say "if it's not broken, break it then fix it so it's exactly the same as it was"… Which begs the question why we got rid of Recruiting Sergeants only to recognise that they actually work and start using […]

Hi folks, Following our little rant in our last newsletter, a recent survey by SSAFA shows that a third of recruiters are reluctant to hire ex-military personnel. We think this is incredibly disappointing and we promise to continue to fight for recognition of your unique skills and attributes – please do help us spread the […]

Hi folks, We were really warmed by the response to a call for people to attend a 103-year-old Second World War veteran’s funeral this week. It's always great to see a hero get the send off he deserves, so a huge thank you to everyone who attended. Elsewhere, we have some really interesting comparisons for […]

Hi folks, It may be hard for many of us to believe, but yesterday marked the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on New York and the Pentagon, an event that would change the world. It's a cliche to say that everybody remembers where they were but we think it's definitely the case here. As […]

Hi folks, Wednesday saw the 40th anniversary of two of the most notorious events of the Northern Ireland Troubles. On 27 August 1979, Lord Louis Mountbatten, the Queen's second cousin, and three others were killed after a bomb exploded on his fishing boat in County Sligo. A few hours later, two IRA bombs went off […]
