I have recently received this message from Brian Parsons

“You may know that there is another attempt at getting some sort of official Veterans’ ID Card for the ex-military.  If successful it would mean that people would no longer have to pay into the British Veterans Recognition Card organisation each year to get a quasi ID card.  Such an official card could be very useful to travellers, particularly in the States, and even here in UK, some stores/organisations do give discounts to ex-servicemen/ women.  Anyway I thought you might feel this petition is one you and association members might like to know about and perhaps support.

Very best regards
