Government is giving you something for nothing, now there's a novelty.
It's a nice, well made badge which comes in a jewel box. Be careful if
your lady sees it first, she might think it's a ring for her. Delivery
time has been within two weeks, mine came in 9 days.
first publishing this article on the Veterans Badge there have been numerous changes to the
terms of qualification and the address of the web site that dealt with
applications, which have made it virtually impossible to ensure that our
information is kept up to date.
Therefore I think that the best solution is to provide a direct link
to the web site of the Veterans Agency where all matters relating to Veterans
are dealt with.
To access The Veterans Agency web site
CLICK ON THE
arriving on the title page, click on Veterans
Community and in that section click on Service Records, Medals
& Badges. Next click on the text H.M.
Armed Forces Veterans Badge. From there you can download an application
form for the badge in whichever format suits you.
The opening statement:
generations our Armed Forces have served their country across the world in
many roles from war fighting, peacekeeping and reconstruction to home
defence. In so doing, they have defended our country, our way of life and our
cherished values. A large number of our veterans are young and active and now
use the skills, the discipline and the leadership they learned in the Armed
Forces to benefit their civilian employers and the wider community. The
Ministry of Defence Strategy for Veterans highlights that because of all this
it is important to focus on supporting veterans of all ages by celebrating,
and raising public awareness of, their achievements and their contribution to
society. To promote recognition of veterans by the wider British public the
unique and unifying symbol of the HM
Armed Forces Veterans Badge is available
to ALL those who have served in HM Armed Forces.
